From olive jar to soft top glass jar storage container
This year I would like to do more crafty projects that require sewing skills. Unfortunately I am not very good at it, so if you see things under a positive light like I do it can only mean there is a lot of room for improvement. I looked into my thread and needle box yesterday, which I occasionally use to attach the odd button, and I must admit it, looked rather basic. It’s obvious I need to improve my sewing kit. In the meanwhile I have collected all my threads, needles, pins and a few buttons into a glass jar, which I repurposed especially for this. It is a simple glass jar with a few sparkling hearts and dots all over and a padded fabric top. I used a glitter pen to decorate the jar, and then I attached a bundle of foam stuffing to the lid with a touch of hot glue and covered it with a piece of fabric. I pulled the fabric all around and secured it to the edge of the lid with a hot glue gun. So no more excuses, with the basics at hand perhaps I’ll be more inclined to try things out and put the fabric glue away.
