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 mason jar kits.
Supplies Used: Note: I added links from Amazon for your convenience.

Steps to make these DIY Sewing Mason Jar Kits:
First, I created the pin cushion on the top of the mason jar lid. Then, I added a handful of filler and covered it with fabric, and added more as needed to make it full. Now, I picked this picnic pattern since I was using Ball Vintage Style mason jars. I used small zip ties and placed them around the bunch of fabric on the bottom.
Cut fabric back
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.
Buy Dollar Store sewing kits
I went to the Dollar store, like Dollar Tree (affiliate), and bought seven sewing kits. I got extra so that I could add more to each sewing kit.
Then I added labels. And 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. I added a thick 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 to the jars.
Tip: Storing them before giving them out
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.
