Fast and easy Mason Jar Sewing Kit

Make this fast and easy mason jar sewing kit

 In a pinch for a quick, easy and inexpensive gift.   There are so many times I get invited to someone’s house, get-together, etc.  I don’t like to show up empty-handed.  So, here is a quick, easy and inexpensive gift.   I call it my emergency traveling sewing kit.  This little sewing kit in a mason jar makes a great gift.   All supplies can be purchased at your local Walmart, Rite-aid, etc.   This is a great kit to have in your desk at work, while you’re traveling, or for a child going off to college.Photo of Mason Jar sewing kit

You will need the following supplies.
One small mason jar (the kind for jelly)
1 small sewing kit (I bought mine at the dollar store, but you can find them at Walmart, Rite, CVS, etc.)

A little bit of fiber fill
Small piece of fabric
Hot glue gun









First:  Cut your out a fabric piece about an inch larger in diameter than your lid.

Take out inner lid from jar, and insert fabric into opening, lightly stuff with fiber fill.  Insert inner lid (with rubber) on top of your fabric and batting


Now tack down the excess fabric with a glue gun.  Be careful not to burn yourself.  Now add the items of your sewing kit.  You can also add a small card.  

Screw lid back onto jar.  Wrap a small ribbon around lid (you can secure with hot glue) and tie into a bow.  Your gift is now ready.
