Jar Top Pin Cushion
Welcome, May Arts fans! Today I will be showing you how to create an adorable little jar top pin cushion using fabulous ribbon from May Arts, a scrap of fabric, a jar, and some Helmar adhesives!
- May Arts Twill Stripes ¾” in Yellow
- Helmar Craft Glue (or 405)
- Helmar ZapDots (clear)
- Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
- A small jar – mine once held paper flowers
- Scrap of Fabric cut into a circle about twice the size of the jar lid. (Samantha Walker by Riley Blake)
- Stampendous! Fun Flock
Begin by applying Zap Dots evenly around the clean, glass jar. Create whatever design you would like with them.
Remove the plastic lining to reveal the sticky side and then add fun flock to the dots. I used the snow white flock for a pretty white dotted line around my jar.
Run a long gathering stitch all the way around the fabric circle about ½ inch from the edge of the fabric. Gather the circle into a little ball, stuff, and stitch the bottom together.
Add a generous amount of Helmar Craft Glue or 405 to the lid of the jar. I used Craft Glue because I was out of 405. The 405 dries faster, so you have to work very quickly, but it’s nice that it dries super fast! Adhere the fabric ball to the lid, stitched side down.
Using Helmar Scrap Dots adhere the May Arts twill around the rim of the lid, keeping it close to the cushion.
Add a few pins and you have an adorable little jar top pin cushion! Store little notions inside the jar for easy access! Have a happy May Arts and Helmar kind of day!!!!
