I'm not much of a sewer. In fact, me and sewing machines don't get along well at all. But on occasion, I do want to add a few stitches to a project. Somehow, I have managed to collect a small amount of thread, bobbins, and straight pins and need a good way to keep them all organized.
So I decided to make my own storage container/pin cushion. The best part of this project - it was made completely with items I had on hand. So what do you need to re-create this project: a Mason jar and lid, white fabric, stuffing, stamps, and markers. That's it!
I started with a 6x6 inch piece of scrap fabric and randomly stamped flowers.
Next, I colored in the flowers. I used the following Zig Fabricolor markers: Black, Yellow, Violet, Cobalt Blue, Green, Light Green, and Pink. And because you know I can't complete a project without some sort of shimmer, I added a bit of sparkle using my Wink of Stella pens in Gl. Clear and Gl. Dark Pink.
How cute is this? Now I have the perfect place to stash not only my straight pins when I get the urge to sew something, but the jar itself now holds all my bobbins in one place.
Simple and functional. What more could I ask for in a project?
