Mason Jar Sewing Kit

I've been super busy making all sorts of fun things to sell at the flea market.
Say what?!?!?
Yes, people I am ready to get going again.  I will be at Kane County Flea Market this
October and November.  I cannot wait!!!  I've had tons of sleepless nights just thinking about what I want to do this go around.  OK well that and the fact I have a baby who is still not sleeping through the night.  Sigh.
One item I've been working on are mason jar sewing kits.  Now these are not new but I had to make my own.  I LOVe how they turned out!!!
Awesome, right?
Here is what I started with.
What did I do?
First I cut fabric slighly larger than the lid of the mason jar.  (Plase excuse the switching of fabrics throughout the pics)
I filled batting between the fabric and lid.
Pushed the lid, batting and fabric through the cap ring.
I cut off excess fabric and then hot glued the fabric to the under
side of the lid.

To perty the under side of the lid I cut another piece of fabric to use as a cover.
Pop the lid back on your jar, fill with sewing essentials and voila.  You got a mason jar sewing kit.

I thought t would be fun to make one a treat jar too.
Do you likey???

  1. Thank you for the tutorial. Those are really cute. I was a little confused with the pushing of the fabric through the cap ring. Do you have to cut through the cap, or you bought jars which already had this done. Thanks! :-)

  2. Thanks Agy! I used the caps that already had the lid cut seperate from the cap ring.

  3. So darling! Thanks so much for sharing these with us last weekend at Inspiration Friday! :-)

  4. I see jars like this all over and I just love them. Yours are beautiful and the tutorial was great hopefully I get a chance to make theses sometime soon!
