First you’ll need a few supplies:
A mason jar with ring and lid, I used a pint size jar
Polyfil (just a small hand full)
Needle & thread
Small piece of felt (the size of the lid)
Fabric Printed with Sewing Machine Graphic
Hot glue gun & stick
Let’s make it!
First take your fabric print and trim out using the ring as your guide. You want to center the graphic and give it about 1 1/2 inches allowance all the way around.
Next, take your needle and thread and stitch close to the edge, all the way around the circle.
When you get to the end, slightly pull in the thread, making the circle cup.
Insert your polyfil (it will only take a small bit), stuffing it in as best you can.
Pop the lid on top and tighten up the circle to hold it in.
Sew in a couple of stitches to hold it all in place, then tie off the thread and trim it off.
Run hot glue under the edge of the fabric to hold the edges down, then run a bit all the way around on top and in the middle.
Lastly, put the felt circle on top of the hot glue, finishing off the edges and holding your fabric in place.
Just put your thread in the jar, then screw on the lid and you’re done! It’s such a simple project, one you can make in minutes. And, they’re so handy – not only do they keep your pins and needles safe, but help organize your thread, too! Hope you’ll make this project 🙂
