Mason jars are all the rage for crafting lately. Last week we featured a Mason jar votive candle. Today we’ve got directions for making a Mason jar pincushion that’s not only fast and easy to make but will keep your sewing supplies neat, organized, and easy to find. Make several in various sizes to store a variety of items.

Mason Jar Pincushion

Hot glue gun

Tacky glue

1. Trace flat part of jar lid onto fabric twice. Cut out one circle the same size as the lid and one approximately an inch larger in diameter.

2. Place the larger fabric circle wrong side up on flat surface. Place a wad of fiberfill over the fabric. Center the lid face down on top of batting. Using the glue gun, glue the edge of the fabric to the inside of the lid.

3. Using the tacky glue, glue the smaller circle face up on the lid to cover the raw edges of the large fabric circle. Screw lid on jar to hold fabric in place while glue dries.

4. Fill jar with buttons, pins, or other sewing supplies.
