Mason Jar Sewing Kit

I am linking this project to…
I have seen many of these little mason jar pin cushions around, and decided to make one…and maybe take it a step forward.  I dug out my sewing machine this week to make a camera strap cover {tutorial here}, and was looking all over for the supplies that I needed.  I had to dig through my sewing box to find my seam ripper and thread scissors, and thought it was a bit ridiculous not to have them all together.  So, I took a few minutes, and threw together this cute little mason jar sewing kit!
I put all of my thread down in the jar.  Then, I took a little square of fabric and some poly-fill, and covered the lid.  Once you slide the ring over the lid, you will get a little poof to put your pins and needles in.  Next, I just slid an elastic hair band around the jar to slip my scissors and seam ripper into.
Now, I have everything right where I need it, and it’s pretty!  I keep it right on my desk, and to be honest, it is inspiring me to get my sewing machine out a little more often!

    Very cute-I would need about a dozen to keep all my supplies. I’m a bit of a hoarder when it comes to craft supplies.

    Very nice! I’ve made one of these too, except that I filled mine with buttons! Such a fun project, and makes a very cute gift for someone who loves to sew too!
