Glass Jar Pin Cushion

This is my latest project.....a Glass Jar Pin Cushion:)

 

Don't look to close...this is the first one I made and it really needs to be cleaned up but I'm super excited about it!!

I used the Glass jars I found at Ikea.  I cut my fabric using the Scallop Circles #2 Die (113469) & the Big Shot Die Cut Machine (#113439).  I attached the fabric using a Hot Glue Gun and I filled it with Poly-fil.   The final touch was adding some ric rac around the bottom to cover up my imperfections with the glue gun.

Update on  5/20/2010......The Fabric is attached to the lid and you can access the buttons in the jar :)

See ya later,

p.s. I'm going to work on the instructions & a video later this week. 


Pin It!

So cute and I love the photo with the chair in the background. I recently saw a similar idea using an ice cream sundae glass...it was so sweet with the buttons stored at the bottom too. Can't wait for the video!

IS IT GLUED TO THE JAR? THEN YOU CANT REMOVE THE BUTTONS?

What a great idea. I have a jar of "found" buttons. This would be a perfect top for quick repairs.

Thanks!
