Storage Jar and Pincushion....

Yesterday when I was doing some cutting for the SAL project, I have little stash came handy for the jam jar that I had cleaned and dried. The lid was soft for cutting out with the can opener. Be careful with the rough cut edges, though!!!

The fabric used was about 5" diameter. Just stitch out 3/8th" around the edge, fill up with fibre, covered with the round cut lid in and tied up. I used a matching lace to add some essence to it. Placed it on top of the jar cover and the base was covered with a matching thick gold paper and glued them together.Here it is......to store my buttons/sweets.
