...........make it easy
Since I returned from India, my moods and energy have been all over the place.....one minute fidgety and restless, keen....in my mind anyway..... to get into the garden and the sewing room......the next, languid and indifferent and blah. Probably more blah than keen actually. To be expected I suppose, but not where I want to be.
After hearing a friend, who rents a small studio space, say that she'd wanted to sew at home rather than trek across town, but that all her sewing supplies were at the studio, I had an 'aha!' moment.
I'd seen a mason jar sewing kit/pin cushion on a couple of blogs, so decided to make her one, the ideal small project that wouldn't take long, but would.....I hope...... get me moving again.
I've done a little step by step picture tutorial as I went along, pretty easy. Gather your supplies....a mason jar....mine was recycled from the op shop.... fabric,you only need a small piece, about 12cms square (5"), some wadding and cardboard.
Draw a circle on your fabric, using the jar lid insert, and cut it out about an inch larger. Also cut a circle from your cardboard, same size as the lid.
Glue the circle of cardboard inside the lid, this will cover those messy jaggedy edges.
While it's drying, duck off to your sewing room and gather some supplies to gift with the jar, or if it's for you, decide what you'll keep in it. I've put a couple of reels of threads I had two of, some needles, a pair of scissors and a few pins in the top. You can do the label or not, as you please.
All done, start sewing, Anne.
That feels better, I'll have to see now what I can manage tomorrow.
........till next time
