Here's a cute project made from a Mason jar from Julie Cefalu at The Crafty Quilter.
This is a perfect, portable sewing kit that anyone could use. If you like hand applique or English paper piecing, this would be perfect for you.
Do you hand-sew your bindings on the back of your quilt? This could be your go-to jar! There is room to put your favorite hand-sewing tools inside and it has a built-in pin cushion on top.
