So I’m assuming you guys are playing along at home, right? Crafting these babies up the day after I post them? No? Well, you could at least pin them to be done never.
Let’s get to this Mason Jar Sewing Kit. I picked this craft for the Always Crafty Workshop out of the process of elimination. When you’re planning a craft day, you realize projects that include painting, baking, 24 hours anything, just won’t work. All crafts have to be ready to go home within a few hours. So this adorable little thing made the cut. I think it would make a good gift too, for the right person. The right person is not me. Don’t give me one of these. It’s cute but sooooorta pointless. And I hate clutter.
Now that I’ve convinced you to make this “decorative” sewing kit, let’s get your supplies: mason jar with painted lid, batting, a scrap of fabric around 8″ x 8″ and a glue gun. Cute vintage sewing notions are a plus.
Take your inner lid and place it on the back of your fabric. Draw a circle about an 1-1/2″ from the edge.
Cut that circle out.
Stuff the fabric through the outer lid.
Add some batting and push through, carefully shaping your little pouf.
Snap the inner lid into place, covering the batting. Glue around the edge of the inner lid and press the excess fabric into place.
Fill your jar with fun little things.
Screw your lid on! Keep in mind that it won’t screw completely on because of the bulk of the fabric but it should go on close enough to stay shut should it get knocked over.
Just don’t knock it over ok?
