as a guest on her blog. Thank you so much!
(I don’t think the name of the blog needs any explanation.)
It is my little corner of the world where I share the everyday adventures of being a mom, teacher, and wife. I also share many of my craft and sewing projects along with tons of tutorials. One of my favorite tutorials is for a Baby Food Jar Pincushion. They are so easy and fun to make. Take a look.
make your pattern. You can use a compass to help you with this step. Make the circle 5-6 inches in diameter. Pin the pattern onto scrap fabric and cut out your fabric circle.
2. Thread a needle and tie a knot in the end of
the thread. It doesn’t matter what color thread you use because it will not show in the end product.
3. Sew around the fabric circle. Do not tie the thread off yet.
4. With the wrong side of the fabric facing down, put pillow stuffing in the center of the fabric circle. Pull on the thread tight in order to pull the outside of the circle around the stuffing. This creates a little pillow. Sew the pillow closed.
6. Using a hot glue gun, secure the pin cushion to the top of the jar’s lid.
Alternative idea: You can also use large baby food jars to make mini sewing kits. Store some of your sewing essentials inside the jar. Toss these sewing kits into your purse or a drawer in order to have on hand when you need to quickly sew a button or fix a hem.
