Purple Pin Cushion Jam/Mason Jar

I made this mini sewing kit complete with it's own pin cushion as a gift for Aunty Emy.  It's not really ment to be used, just to sit and look pretty what could be better than that.  They are really easy, I picked up the jam/preserve or Mason jar from our local Cooks supply shop, stuffed a ball of fabric with wading, bunched it together with an elastic band and hot glue gunned it to the lid.  The fun part is being a bower bird and filling the jar with pretty sewing things, a colour theme pulls it all together, its all purple for me.

Lots of lovely things inside

The top needed  bit more some felt flower shapes did the trick.
More things inside, the felt is a needle holder.

Glue the pin cushion puff to the large flat part of lid.
Position flat part on jar rim and pull the
screw ring over the cushion puff.
 Come and make purple things with me and other crafters at Craft Purple
