Make It Monday – Mason Jar Sewing Kit

Leave a comment

I’m starting several new series here on Be Your Own Adventure. One of them is Make it Monday. Whether it’s a DIY project I find on Pinterest or something creative I come up with myself, I’ll be sharing a few of the things that I am up to lately. Of course, with Christmas only 10 weeks away, I won’t be able to share everything that I am working on.

This week I finally got around to making a mason jar sewing kit. I’ve been in need of a pin cushion for ages, but didn’t want to buy one, I wanted to make one for myself. I came across the mason jar sewing kit idea on Pinterest & thought it looked pretty simple & of course, I love jars! The extra storage space is a big plus too.

I tried the Marth Stewart tutorial twice, I couldn’t get it to work either time. The lid wouldn’t fit on. I was ready to give up & said so to Jude (my four year old). He promptly told me I couldn’t give up. Nothing would do then but to look for another tutorial. I found this one, and it worked!

Take a gander…

And just an FYI, hot glue is very hot & will give you a blister! Drat.
