I mentioned in my last post about vintage teacups, that I like to display my craft supplies. As well as teacups I use a lot of jars for keeping small craft items in. I love those tiny jars that you can get with jam in and I usually keep them for storing a few bits and pieces in. Sometimes I cover or decorate the lids of jars to make them a bit more interesting or they tend to just look like old jam jars. With this jar I decided to create a pincushion on the lid of the jar. I used some small pieces of Liberty print fabric to create the pincushion and it is filled with a bit of toy stuffing. It was quite a quick and simple project but it creates practical yet pretty storage for a few brooch backs and safety pins.
