- A mason jar that you don't mind modifying
- Fabric (here's a chance to use your scraps!)
- Cotton batting
- Hot Glue - I didn't use it, but you might need it
Detatch or cut out the center part of the lid. Trace the lid on a piece of cardboard and then cut it out; the two circles should be the same size.
Cut the fabric into a circle that is slightly larger than the lid. I didn't make any exact measurements, since you'll only see the center section. Take a small amount of cotton batting, place it underneath the fabric, and then push the fabric through the lid. Place the cardboard underneath the batting to create your pin cushion.
I'm not sure if it was just the cardboard I used, but my cushion stayed in place after I'd pushed the cardboard as far as it would go. I even tested it by pressing on the top - the thing is sturdy! If yours is not secure, use hot glue to secure the fabric and cardboard to the original lid.
The lid should screw back onto the mason jar normally. Fill with sewing supplies and enjoy.
