I have a few crafty friends whom I know would absolutely love to receive this. It also struck me what a fabulous idea it is for Craft Fayres.
The original Pin Cushion Jar I came across was much smaller than the one I have used, and contained buttons (ideal for crafters).
I used a Kilner specialist preserve jar and the inside of the lid detaches, which enables you to create the pin cushion.
I sourced some small Kilner jars which are available at John Lewis at a cost of £1 and I purchased this larger one at The Range for £2.49.
I found some very pretty fabric at The Range for the Pin Cushion which is not made from fibre fill or cotton balls. I cheated !!! Mine is made from Bubble Wrap !!!!!!!
Ever so easy to make. See this link to a brilliant tutorial by Amy Sinibaldi http://www.ehow.com/ehow-crafts/blog/making-it-pretty-the-mason-jar-pin-cushion-sewing-kit-2/
I had to give the project the Stampin' Up! touch though.
So I added the lovely Whisper White Satin Bow and stamped up the label which is from the "Oh My Goodies" stamp set and then die cut the image using the co-ordinating Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies The stamp set and dies can be purchased together as a bundle or purchased separately - See my product list below.
I hope you like this project and may be inspired to put one together yourselves.
Thank you for stopping by today.
