DIY Project: Sewing Kit in a Jar (with video)

I was browsing at YouTube to find some craft ideas that can be done using jars available at home. But most of the jar crafts are I found were using mason jars. Since I only have those ordinary jars at home, I decided to make something out of this jars I got.

Just to give some idea, mason jars got 2 lids which is a good jar to store your food, etc. Because I only have a 1-lid jar, I tried to reinvent and make a Sewing Kit in a Jar as a gift idea for a friend!


  • Cardboard
  • Fabric
  • Jar
  • Stuffing for Pin Cushion (Cushion Fillers/Cotton/Foam)
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • And decorative items to decorate your jar
  • Making the Pin Cushion
    In a cardboard, trace a circle using the jar opening as a pattern. Feel free to cut it and adjust so that the cardboard can fit perfectly to the jar.
  • Next, start gluing your fabric to the cardboard, then when you are done half-way, put the stuffings inside. Since I have cushion fillers, I decided to use them. They can be brought at craft stores and also at book stores.
  • Now you are done with the pin cushion! The pin cushion will serve as the LID of the jar. As a support so you can open the lid with ease, use a ribbon and glue it a the side of the pin cushion. (See image below).
  • Decorating the Jar
    Now feel free now to decorate your jar. I used lace and ribbons to decorate the jar.
  • And now you are done!
I provided a video which can show you a more detailed tutorial on how I made sewing kit in a jar:

So there you have it! Isn't it a great gift idea for your mom and also your friends? You recycled a jar and also personalized it and make a sewing kit out of it! :D

Remember your creativity is not the finding of a thing, but making something out of it until it is found. Thanks for reading!
