I'm no seamster, but I do have a few needles lying around that would much prefer life in this canning-jar-turned-pincushion. This rendition is quite adorable and could easily be made with scrap fabric and recycled jars. It even has built-in storage for other sewing supplies.

First things first: have you ever seen such an adorable canning jar? This half pint size jar was the choice of Suzzane for her pincushion project — the steps of which she has documented well in photos and words. Any canning jar could be used but the larger the jar, the more storage you get inside.

  • Fabric Scrap of your choice
  • Jar with lid and band
  • Cotton balls or fiberfill
  • Card Stock
  • Glue gun, not pictured
