Make a Pin Cushion with a Jam Jar Lid

If you have been following me on Instagram, you’ll know I have gone a bit crazy doing some stitching. Well as I have been stitching, my needles have been getting everywhere, so I decided to make a little pin cushion to help out Mr Tomato.  See he has a buddie now.

Make your own pin cushion with a lid from a jar and some scraps

Want to make one? All you will need is a lid from an old jar and some scraps of material and some stuffing.  Here’s a breakdown ……

Materials:
Lid from an old jam jar
Stuffing
Scrap fabric cut in a circle shape to fit the lid
Thread
Bits of ribbon or ric rac, buttons – anything you have in your stash to decorate
Glue Gun

  • With the circle of fabric, do a running stitch all around and place the stuffing inside, then pull thread to close and sew in place.

PinCushion

  • Put some glue in the lid and place the fabric in it and hold for a few minutes until it’s well stuck down.
  • Now you can glue some ribbon or ric rac around the lip so you wont see this lip and embellish away.
  • I did a small bit of backstitch on the fabric at the start, you could try something like this or just leave as is.

    Love that little bit of stitching detail on the fabric, such a cute touch.
    I have 2 pincushions that I must have made over 25 years ago, I still use both – that makes me feel a little bit old!
