Easy Makes :: Kilner Jar Sewing Boxes






I love this new make of mine - a simple glass jar with a handmade pincushion hot-glued onto the lid keeping all my go-to sewing things in one place :: some thread, needle threader, seam ripper, needles and some scissors and shears. All the things I regularly use in an easy to carry along compartment.

I am particularly fond of having my own pincushion just for needles now, which were always hard to find in the forest of pins of my others.

I just LOVE this jar of mine. It's just one of those things that defies explanation.... make one why don't you?

  1. Oh that is a great idea! It would be much handier to have a jar with just the essentials, rather than having to lug out and dig through my huge sewing box each time. I have a tea cup pin cushion like yours, and I also have a set of small plates that have the same pattern on as your tea cup!

  2. the cup has the handle missing, so that's why it's a pincushion! yes the jar is much easier than carrying a sewing box everywhere - I have a sewing box and hardly use it it's so inconvenient....

  3. Oh Super cute! You amaze me on how much stuff you get done all the time. Happy Monday to you!


  4. the pincushion was a ten minute make, really. but so useful!
