Whichever it is that you choose, one thing is for sure, you will love this adorable project and have fun making it.



  • 1 small or medium-sized mason jar
  • A small piece of scrap fabric
  • Batting or foam
  • Scissors
  • Marking pen or pencil
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks


Step 1

Remove the lid of the small mason jar, then take the metal lid, and trace it onto foam or batting twice. After tracing the round shape of the metal lid, cut them out nicely, then lay one circle of foam or batting on top of the metal lid before topping it with some scrap foam until it’s tall enough, and place the other circle of foam or batting on top. Cut a small piece of fabric into a round shape that is larger than the lid and lay it down with its wrong side up.

Step 2

Next, place the sandwiched foam upside down on top of the wrong side of the fabric, and press it down using the metal lid as shown in the video. Now, using hot glue, gather the ends toward the metal lid, then adhere them nicely, and once done, insert it into the metal screw band with the curved cushion poking outside. Fill the jar with your thimble, thread, pins, buttons, and more, then close the jar with the lid, and you’re done!
