5 MINUTE DIY SEWING KIT PROJECT: ORGANIZE YOUR SUPPLIES


I've told you before that I do not possess the crafty gene. I have just enough talent to fake something if I have really simple instructions. On that note, let me tell you that the only reason you'll find a needle and thread in my house is so I can do quick fixes on the kids lost buttons or tack a seam back in place. That's the extent of the sewing gene that I posess.

And, of course, when the kids yell for something to be fixed, I have to hunt down that needle and thread and can't ever seem to find it - because honestly, my use of it is so far and few between...

IF by chance there are any of you that are organizationally and/or sewing challenged as I am, then this 5 minute DIY Sewing Kit project is for you. This is also a great project for kids & teens!

All you need is a mason jar & lid, a small scrap of fabric and some sort of stuffing(batten or even cotton balls) and whatever miscellaneous sewing tools you like to keep on hand for those emergency fixes.

Simply cut a perfectly round circle of your fabric - about 2 inches bigger than the circle of your jar lid. Place the top of the lid over the fabric and then stuff the inside to form your "poof". Then attach the solid circular metal lid underneath to hold it in place.

Throw your supplies in and now you'll never have to hunt down that needle & thread again!

Obviously you could make this as formal or cute as you like depending on your fabric and even add some extra edging with a hot glue gun. I used what I had on hand for a quick fix.


It's definately a Thrifty Little Thing :D
