Jar Crochet Pin Cushion

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


I have long wanted to make a crochet pin cushion for my desk but couldn’t settle on a design.  But when I saw these Mason Jar Sewing Kits that my friend Meredith made, I knew what I wanted to do!

I basically just followed Meredith’s tutorial, but instead of fabric, I used a round crochet motif. Pretty fun, huh?  I just played around to come up with this one. I have to sit down and see if I can recreate it and write out the pattern for you. But in the meantime, any round motif will do.

I love being able to see my colorful threads and buttons!

    This is so beautiful, Kara! I love the colors you chose and is that “washi lace tape” that you used for the rim? LOVE it!

    What a colorful creative idea. I’m think this would make a great gift, filling it will simple everyday sewing kit items.

    Hi – Love the pincushion jar! How did you adhere the edge to the cap? thanks, Kathy

      Hi Kathy 🙂 I used a very thin line of hot glue to adhere to p edge to the cap. Just be careful not to use to much or else the cap won’t screw on the jar properly. Hope that helps!
