Sewing Kit in a Jar

I saw this on Pinterest and found this how-to from Martha Stewart and so I HAD TO SHARE! This is a super-cute idea and a great gift idea for moms, grandmas, teachers and secret sisters.  It would also be good to have one handy in your kitchen or office.  So ladies, here it is!

Sewing Kit in a Jar

What you need:

  1. Mason Jar
  2. Cushion Material
  3. Compass
  4. Material
  5. Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue
  6. Cardboard
  7. Pins
  8. Items you want to fill the Jar with

What you do:

  1. To begin, separate the lid's sealer and screw cap.
  2. Trace around sealer on cardboard. 
  3. Using a compass, draw another circle on linen or cotton, 1 inch larger in diameter than the first. 
  4. Cut out both circles; make cushion by placing batting between fabric and cardboard. 
  5. Turn screw cap upside down, and apply hot glue to inside edge of rim; quickly press cushion into lid until cloth protrudes smoothly above screw cap's opening and cardboard is flush against rim. 
  6. Apply hot glue around edge of cardboard, fold over excess fabric, and press down. 
  7. Glue top of sealer to cardboard. 
  8. AND NOW THE FUN PART - Fill jar.
