Make Your Own Mason Jar Sewing Kit


Here is a SUPER easy and handy DIY! Make Your Own Mason Jar Sewing Kit.


I love this because it has a vintage look. It is also practical. I completed this DIY in about 15 minutes. Plus, you probably already have all or most of the items needed to make this.


What You Need:

Mason Jar (I used a blue Mason Jar)


Stuffing (or cotton balls)


Glue or Tape


Label & Ribbon (optional)


Step 1:

Start out by cutting your fabric into a small square. (About 4 times the size of your lid.) You will need to trim this down more after you get a feel for how much stuffing you need.


Step 2:

Trace the inner lid onto a piece of cardboard and cut. (I did 2 pieces for aesthetic reasons.)


Step 3:

Sandwich a small amount of stuffing between your fabric and one circle of cardboard. (Your cardboard does not need to have a hole in the center. That is the only cardboard I could find upstairs.)


Step 4:

Press into the metal ring. Trim any excess fabric and tape or glue down. You can toss the inner metal lid you will not need it.



Step 5:

Add an additional cardboard to cover up the mess. Press into the ring. It should stay in place. Wah-la! You have a pin cushion.


Step 6:

Add a ribbon and label if you like. (I used a chalkboard label)


Step 7:

Fill with sewing goodies!


Scissors, thread, buttons…I found those adorable bird scissors here.  Then add your pins and needles to the pin cushion. I used a few pearlized pins because I love the way they looked. Makes a great gift too!

      Thank you Jeanette. This was one of the projects I have been wanting to try forever…but I quite honestly dreaded it. I will say the pin cushion took me a few attempts to get right…but other than that it was a really quick and easy project. I hope you give it a try. -Jessica

    What a cute idea, I love this! It would make such a great little gift for someone who loves to sew! I made a similar jar a couple of years ago, with a pincushion on top of the lid as you did, and I store buttons in it. This is such a cute idea too! Love it! 🙂
