Made it Monday :: Pinned Sewing Kit Jar Made

Yes, I am one of those people who madly pin on Pinterest. 

I do not have 1000's of pins as I am trying to spend more time in creation mode rather than pinning mode.  And I like to pin with purpose.  Some of my pins are pure inspiration or aspiration.  But most of my pins are intended for me to have a go at.

Rick started the ball rolling with his cabinet.  Then I knitted this rocket.

But this is my first item from my 'Craftiness' board.

Here is my pin but go here for the real thing.

Armed with my new hot glue gun I got busy.  After years of seeing Martha Stewart with her hot glue gun, I thought it was high time I got one too.  And boy do I feel crafty now!  Not to mention all the things I have been mending with it!

I love the concept and have seen many versions of it.  But I didn't quite nail it.  I am collecting jars to make more but in the meantime, I ripped this pin cushion off and placed a square one on instead.

The round one does look better but up close it was sloppy.  I also stuffed it with batting a swell as wadding thinking that I was being smart using up scraps.  It just didn't work.  I will give it another go though.  I think, once mastered, these sewing kit jars will make lovely gifts. Might actually be ready for Christmas this year!


  1. Hi hon, thank you so much for visiting my blog. It's always lovely to hear from new folk as it means I get to discover a whole new blog too! I love your pincushion jar - what a totally fabulous idea. But most of all (from the posts I've seen so far) I am GREEN with envy over your fabulous cabinet! How clever is your fella? It's fantastic.

    Have a fabulous week hon,

  2. What a fun's the playing around and getting it just how you want it that gives you a little ownership over an idea floating around out there. I have a long arm to pintrest 'cause I just don't have too many more hours left to get any closer. Lots of beautiful things on it though. x


Hey thanks for popping by! I read all your comments and really try and get to your blog too.
