Make Your Own Mason Jar Sewing Kit

Bernardin jars can be used for fun things besides canning this time of the year. We can use these jars to make wonderful homemade gift that we can give to our family and friends. I thought "outside the jar" for the holiday season and made this Mason Jar Sewing Kit. You never know when you'll need sewing supplies like pins, needles, thread, and tape measure, so I am sure anyone getting these jars as a gift will appreciate it.
To do this project I used...
Bernardin green vintage jar
Polyester filling
Glue gun
Supplies to put inside the jar
First, remove the lid and trace the inner part of the lid on to the cardboard and cut it. Draw a circle on the cloth about half an inch bigger than the cardboard cutout, and cut it.
Place the polyester filling on top of the cardboard and cover it with the cloth, use a glue gun to stick the fabric to the cardboard. Put some glue on top of the snap lid and place the completed pincushion over it. 
Push the snap lid with the pincushion through the lid. Fill the jar with sewing kit materials and close the lid. Before giving this Mason Jar Sewing kit as a gift, place a message or ribbon around the jar.
