Happy week end!
Here's another tutorial I've done for you to recycle your jars.
I real crafter should always have a pincushion, well, I didn't have one and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on it so I used items that everybody has at home, to make it as eco-friendly and cheap as possible.
Time needed: 20 mins
- Fabric Scrap
- Jar with Lid (I've used a bath salt one but baby food jar, olives, preserves jars or anything you like with a lid could do)
- Ribbon (I've used a 2 cm one (less that 1 Inch) but measure your lid height before choosing it)
- Hot glue gun
- Needle and tread (any color as it will be invisible)
I've used a cup with a diameter twice as big as the lid diameter
to cut the circle of fabric
Sew around the edges with large and quick stitches.
Below you can see the dimensions in respect of my jar
Pull the tread from the 2 sides to close the fabric
Fill with batting and make it really full and pull completely the tread and make a knot
Now get the glue gun and spread the glue all over the lid.
Press really well the cushion on the lid in order to have all the side well attached. Get your ribbon and start adding glue on the side of the lid and press. I advise to do a little area at the time as the glue dries really fast. ( the stain in the picture is not blood :-), it's my son doing polka dots on it!)
And TA-DA-AM HERE it is. Pin your needles on it and store the rest inside!
