I love mason jar kit ideas. This one is perfect to help keep your friends and family organized. They are ideal for college students, teenagers, single men, and women. Anyone who needs to mend their clothes quickly. It's so easy to put together too. Here is what I used to make these sewing kits:
Supplies Used: Note: I added links from Amazon for your convenience.
- Ball Jar Heritage Collection Pint Jars with Lids and Bands, Blue, Set of 6
- Wrapables Red Obsession Japanese Washi Masking Tape, Set of 3
- Quilting Squares or Scrap Fabric: Here is an example of one. 10" Square Summer Picnic Collector Series.
- Fairfield Poly-Fil Premium Polyester Fiber, White, 1 Bag, 12-Ounce
- Seven(7) sewing kits from the dollar store: Here is an example of one from Amazon: Singer Sewing Kit in Storage Box
- 4 Small zip ties: Here is a pack from Amazon: 100 White Nylon Cable Zip Ties Self Locking 2.5mm x 4."
- Any style tabs
- Blue thin ribbon
Steps to make these DIY Sewing Mason Jar Kits:
First, I created the pin cushion on the top of the mason jar lid. I added a handful of filler and covered it with fabric and added more as needed to make it full. I picked this picnic pattern since I was using Ball Vintage Style mason jars. I used small zip ties and placed it around the bunch of fabric on the bottom.
I then cut the fabric back so it isn't too bulky. The other part of the lid (shown below) holds the fabric and cushion in place. Then, I went and added Washi Tape around the end that matched.
I went to the dollar store and bought seven sewing kits. I got extra, so I could add more to each sewing kit.
I then added labels. I added the Washi Tape in rows to match the patterns up and cut off the excess. I left about 2 centimeters of tape, so I was able to fold it back. They I added think blue string. Note, I only had yellow tabs, but if you do this, you can buy white tabs for a better look. Also, I also suggest adding a round sticker in the back to help keep the edges down. Also, these round tags were from a discontinued Avery / Martha Stewart pack I bought at Staples a while ago.
Here is the final product! I made four full sewing kits and added them into the jars.
If you want to store these somewhere before giving them out, keep the box the mason jars came in. It's handy to carry the finished sewing kits to hand out on the go.
And, that is it. What do you think? Would you make these and give them as gifts? Please leave a message/comment below. I would love to hear from you.

These are great! I think even I could do this project. The sewing kits you buy are tiny so this would be much harder to lose track of. Plus the extra space would allow storage of extra spools or thread or other items!
I am a Pinterest and mason jar nut. You can find so many adorable ideas of things to make and do with a simple mason jar. This is a really cool idea. I'm not huge into sewing, but I do enough where this small sewing jar/pin cushion would be just right size.
Mason jar projects are so much fun. I plan on doing more in the new year. =) Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
What a perfect gift for the college student or young adult in your life! When you leave home for the first time, you often don't realize how nice it was to have all the "supplies" for living already in the house. This is nice and small and still has what you need - perfect!
Adorable idea! How fun. Mason jars have a lot of potential. I went to a restaurant recently where they served the iced tea in mason jars that you could take home with you if you wanted. It was a clever way to deliver our drinks with a great option for repurposing.
What a great fun gift to make for teachers and other people in your children's live.
