DIY Mason Jar Sewing Kit

Earth Day was yesterday and I don't know about you, but it sure made us ponder on ways to recycle items available in our own closet. I guess in the crafting world we would call this "UPCYCLING". The idea of using something old to create something new as never been so popular! 

As a craft store, you can imagine that we have an unlimited amount of supplies that can turn anything old into a unique creation. Let's start with this Mason Jar Sewing Kit. We'll be using fabric scraps and a mason jar to create this great Mother's Day gift.

DIY Mason Jar Sewing Kit -  - Mother's Day Gift

Here's what you'll need:

• Mason Jar
• Fabric
• Balloon
• Sand
• Clover Kanzashi Flower Maker
• Decorative Button
• E-6000 Glue

Let's get started!

1. Fill a small balloon with sand (until it has a round top). Measure and cut a circle of fabric for the balloon adding a few extra inches of fabric. Place the balloon in the center of the fabric (outer print side down). Place the top part of the lid on top of the balloon. Wrap the fabric around the lid and use E-6000 glue to secure it to the lid.

2. Place glue to the inside rim of the band and attach the lid to the band. Cut a small circle from the fabric and glue it onto the bottom inside of the lid to hide where the fabric was folded onto the lid. Set aside to let dry.

3. Decorate the mason jar to your liking. We dressed it up with a matching cozy and a fabric flower. The fabric flower was created with the Clover Kanzashi Flower Maker. Here's a video from Clover giving you step-by-step instructions on how to use the flower maker. Flower making has never been this easy using this product! It's quite a handy tool to have.
