So Sherry tackled sewing a bean bag and I tackled something a bit more basic – a mason jar sewing kit! I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest (and my new found ability to attach a button to a coat). Thanks for featuring this little project in the Pinterest Challenge, Sherry, Katie, Cassie and Erin!
Y’all didn’t think I could keep my sewing supplies like this, did you?
As I proclaimed here, I can now sew. Kind of. As in, I can sew on a button. And nothing stops kind-of sewing like misplaced supplies or having to dig said supplies out of clamshell plastic packaging.
Enter, the Mason Jar. Oh, mason jar – is there any end to your possibilities?
I followed this tutorial at the awesome Momtastic blog to make a cute little sewing kit. It took all of 15 minutes and it adds a pop of color to my desk/craft table.
This is one of those projects that isn’t at all necessary, but adds some pretty to a mundane thing – my favorite kind.
(Apologies for the iPhone photos.)
The fabric is cut from the backdrop used in my birthday party photo booth (so fun!). I also repurposed it as a Christmas tree skirt this year.
And…I didn’t have any batting and didn’t want to buy it for the small amount this project required, so I “borrowed” some stuffing from one of my pillows that had a tiny hole in the bottom. The pillow didn’t seem to mind.
There you have it – a pretty quick sewing kit made from items I had around the house. Now I’ll just have to wait for a button to fall off of something.
Do you have a sewing kit?
