Remove Mason jar lid and place it on fabric for tracing – trace a circle around lid making fabric circle at least 1”-1.5” larger (all around) for stuffing and tucking.

Tighten thread a little to create a “pocket” for stuffing and fill it in with soft fiberfill.

Place flat part of Mason jar lid inside this fabric pocket and tighten the fabric by continuing to pull thread. When fabric is tight enough and desired look of “dome” is achieved, tie a sturdy knot in thread and cut. Glue down edges of fabric to the flat center lid piece with Aleene’s® Fabric Fusion.

Add a ribbon in a coordinating color to dress up your finished jar! Our designer made a ribbon using leftover scraps of fabric she had on hand.

    I have a couple of these that were made back in the early 1900,s using those old zinc topped mason jars. They were inside of a standing sewing chest I bought for 5 bucks and I love and still use those jars today. I have straight pins in one and buttons in the other one but having a pin cushion would sure come in handy when I'm sewing. This idea is something that will never go out of style as long as there are buttons that need to be put back on DIY projects or small mending jobs to do.
