Odds & Ends Jar

Odds & Ends Jar

Store your sewing essentials in a handy jar with a pincushion lid.


# glass canning jar with a two-piece lid

# fabric scrap

# fiberfill

# fabric glue


1. Remove the jar lid and set aside the ring part. From the fabric scrap, cut a circle that's 2* greater in diameter than the circular part of the lid.

2. Glue a small handful of fiberfill to the circular part. Cover the fiberfill with the fabric circle. Glue the fabric edges to the circular part underside to create the pincushion.

3. Place the pincushion over the jar opening. Screw the ring part back onto the jar to secure the pincushion.

Usually you can purchase jelly jars at you local hardware store such as Ace Hardware. If you have home improvement stores in your area you might be able to purchase them there also. I have even found old jars of different sized at garage sales. You can purchase new lids and rings where every you find canning supplies. Even at grocery stores. Hope this will help. windycity

they are jars for canning. you can buy them in department stores esp in the summer when many people can fresh foods from their garden. many hardware stores even carry them during that time also. right now, i'd try to find them online due to the fact that they are pretty much out of season in the us.
Meant to add...
I live in the UK
