DIY Gift: Mini Pin Cushion Sewing Kit

9 Materials
Make this cute little pin cushion sewing kit with a mason jar!
I hope you enjoy this diy mason jar craft as much as I do! It makes me think of my grandmother since she taught me to sew. First, gather all your supplies.
Remove the lid portion of your mason jar and lay it on the fabric so that the top is facing the “wrong” side of the fabric. Cut around the lid, leaving ½” of extra fabric all the way around.
Apply an even line of hot glue on the underside 1” at a time, gathering and folding fabric over and pressing into glue, barely overlapping. Continue until you have a 2” opening. Then stuff with cotton batting until desired puffiness is reached. Hot glue fabric until it is completely sealed to the lid. This creates the pin cushion part of the diy sewing kit.
Cut a small piece of felt to keep the needles neatly.
Fill your pin cushion sewing kit include a few basic necessities that will come in handy for popped buttons or loose hemlines- a small spool of both black and white thread, a small retracting measuring tape, straight pins, and a couple needles on fabric. Slip covered lid through ring and place on jar and Screw shut.
Now you can tie a pretty bow and diy mini pin cushion sewing kit and your diy gift is ready! Aren't you just the handiest?
