Step 2: How To

Make sure your fabric is not too thick.
1. Cut out a cardboard circle with the size of your jar top.
2. Spray paint jar ring.
3. Lay batting on top and slide the jar ring over it.
4. Glue the metal circle of the jar top on top of the cardboard circle.

Step 3: Spray Paint the Silhouette Stencil

To pimp up the jar a little, I made a silhouette stencil out of paper (Download) and then spray painted the cut out. You could also use chalk labels like here.

Step 4: Et Voila!

you are finished. fill with yarns and buttons!

    Sweeet idea:) I'm going to make these for my sons and daughter for Christmas. They all learned how to sew by hand and on a sewing machine:):) Very proud they can:):):) But they can't seem to have a kit of their own, always asking me for the hand kit(not that I mind). This is perfect, they will all have a laugh and appreciate it at the same time:):) Thanks for the post and God Bless:):):)

    How on earth did you think of this!! Clever!

    So cute! I've been storing sewing odds and ends in a jar for a while-- but I never thought to put a pin cushion right on top. Perfect!

    Very clever and would make such a useful gift. Wish I had thought of it years ago when I put together some very expensive sewing kits for family one Christmas....they often tell me how much they use them....everyone needs a sewing kit!
