Ready for a project that will keep you on pins and needles?
Well, it's Monday.. so let's get our craft on!
I totally stole the inspiration for this simple idea from Pinterest... since it fits my style for super.fast.stupid.easy do.it.yourself projects.
Mason jar with detached lids
Stuffing fluff or Steel Wool (which I hear makes your pins stay sharp!)
Cut circle of fabric
Hot glue the circle of fabric under the bottom of the mason jar lid.. gathering it as you go around. Leave a gap to stuff your fluff - or steel wool - into the topside of the lid. Then finish gluing the fabric down around the rest of the lid. Done!
Voila! Fun pin cushion/sewing storage jar to go!
(I also use baby food jars to store baby thread spools).
I know Hector the Hedgehog is delighted to be relieved of his duties now...
(Funny side-note: my two-ddler thinks she's helping me sew by jamming him full of pins when I'm at my sewing machine!).
Happy crafting friends,
