Mother’s Day is coming closer, and I was wondering what all these wonderful women, who run their ( little) successful family (-business), would want for Mother’s Day.
Or what would they like to make for their mom?
So today we have a sewing kit in a jar!
- Spray Paint
- Hot Glue
You guys probably think “dammit, when is she going to buy some new fabric!”… I am sorry guys, still having leftovers from my birthday in a suitcase project (which btw got featured at Apartment Therapy today).
The pictures should be self-explanatory. To pimp up the jar a little, I made a silhouette stencil out of paper (Download) and then spray painted the cut out. You could also use chalk labels like here.
More things in jars:
…in the bathroom
… and here is another really cute pin cushion jar.
This is it for today, now off to buy some fabric;-)

I am starting my own linky party tomorrow (eek!)! It’s the first one. I would love it if you would participate! It’s called $10 Tuesdays and it’s for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I’m guessing others will too Thanks so much for considering.

I love repurposing mason jars! Such a cute idea! I’ve been following you for a little while, my newest canadian blogger friend! I love to connect with Canadians (nothing against Americans, we just have different stores here). I’m new to blogging, but I have limited Canadian contacts in the blogging world, so it’s nice to find you!

This is SO cute! love this idea! How fun!
I loved this idea so much, I shared it in my Saturday Seven lineup this week! http://www.positivelysplendid.com/2011/05/saturday-seven-no-12.html
I just checked it out, awesome!! Thank you so much!
Oh I want to make a million of these for friends and family (and for myself to display all over the house). Thanks for the cute idea!
I love using things you would throw away..great idea..I am off to make one.
This is my first time visiting your site and I love it!!!! I do have a question about the sewing kit jars. How did you attach the fabric and still have enough space to close the jar?
I used thin fabric, that’s the only way. You have to really push down and screw;-)
This is a wonderful idea. I think the girl with the ponytail makes it really stand out. This cute little kit. Maybe I can inspire my daughters to sew.
Génial ! merci pour ce tuto ! Bye
I highlighted this cute craft on my little blog at http://wadelmat.blogspot.com/ Thanks!

Love this. My mom has been asking for a sewing kit for Christmas, and I didn’t just want to get her an old boring box! Just got some fabric of her favorite color. LETS DO THIS
Where did you buy your jar with the little girls head on it? I’m looking for that size.
Hi! I just saw this great site and found this perfect idea for my mum’s birthday. I would love to do it, but I have some doubts.
1. How did you do the hole on the jar top?
2. What did you use to cover bottom part of the top so the cottom doesn’t fall?
Thanks a lot for your help and for this fantastic page!
I love this and posted a link to it on my own blog as a Mother’s Day gift idea. Hope that’s okay.
Thanks for sharing! I featured your project today in a last minute mother’s day gift round up on Creative Green Living.
how did you get the lid cut out? or did it come that way??? i tried it with a can opener and its not so pretty…
It came like that;-)
Mason or Kilner jars have some sorts with detachable inner lids, normally used for jams etc!
I’m loving the ideas and am having a go but my cute chosen fabric with cotton reels on us obviously too thick! Any other hints?
