Christmas in July, part 3

Hi again! My next little treasure I made for my CIJ swap partner is this pin cushion I made from a pint size "Ball" mason jar.

This was my first time making one & I had to make it twice because after hot gluing the fabric & stuffing onto the lid I couldn't get it to screw down all the way. LOL Regroup..........then I took another lid & just glued it to the top of the lid instead of the bottom. There are several tutorials online but I found this one the most helpful.......'Suzanne's Crazy for Collars' blog. I don't know why I couldn't get it to work like hers but I'll try again. Maybe I had too much fabric in the way. Oh & learn. LOL I then glued on some sweet little pink daisy trim all around the outer edge.

Isn't that scissor charm the sweetest little thing.  I found it hiding in my button box.  I thought it would make the perfect little touch on top.  I stuck in various stick pins & flowers all around & then added a little box of straight pins inside the jar for her to use later.

Thanks again for joining me.  I'll be back soon to show you another goodie I made.

Huggies & Sweet Blessings ~♥♥♥~
