5-10 minutes. They come together really fast!
Mason jar - I use 8oz or larger so that it's a decent size to hold sewing notions.
Fabric scrap, cut a few inches larger than the jar lid
Handfill of polyfill/toy stuffing
Small piece of decorative paper
1. If you haven't already, cut your fabric scrap into a circle a couple of inches larger than the jar lid. I recommend cutting a little larger than you expect as you can always cut back the excess. Also, trace the inner lid piece onto the decorative paper. Cut out.
2. Now, take the fabric scrap and place over the main jar lid. Push stuffing into fabric, and cover with the inner jar lid.
Pull fabric tightly, adjusting the fill as needed until the pincushion shape is formed.
3. Cut off excess fabric, so that there is just enough to glue down and seal the pincushion lid. Using the glue gun, pipe glue onto inner jar lid and press fabric down.
4. Once the fabric is glued down, apply glue to top of fabric and apply decorative paper.
Your jar is now complete! Give as is, or fill with fun items for a craft gift. You can make a sewing kit by throwing in some little scissors, basic threads, needles, etc. Other uses could be filling it with buttons, zippers, or other sewing notions.
I'll be posting this on the Crafty Christmas Club blog. If you haven't been there, it's a great site where people post their holiday tutorials. Tilly (from Tilly and the Buttons) launched it last year, and it's back for this holiday season. Go check it out!
