Hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday! I've been sharing my various mason jar gifts (see previous posts) for my Mason Jar Christmas! I know it is the day after, but I still wanted to share some more of my mason jar gifts--maybe you can use one of the ideas for a future gift!
These were for my older grand girls, Colleen, Courtney, Taylor, Kayleigh, Madison, Cassandra, Alessandra, and Hope:
These are filled with sewing notions for the beginning sewer. Tape measure, pins, needles, needle threader, safety pins, thread and seam ripper. All are pink because I want my grands to remember to take care of themselves (as I am a breast cancer survivor.)
But . . . and there is a "but". I have said in my blog profile that I share disappointments. So here goes: I followed several Internet blog instructions for this pincushion lid. But, most instructions did not say what to stuff the pincushion with. Being in a hurry (Christmas and all), I stuffed it with what I had which wasn't the best. Also, most instructions did not explicitly explain a good way to attach the pincushion in a way that the lid would fit onto the jar again. There was not enough clearance left for a tight fit. They look nice, but are not functional enough. Suffice it to say, that I will be replacing the lids of all my grand children's gift jars as soon as I have redone them. And I will share, hopefully, the solution.
Sharing a few more mason jar ideas in the next post. Happier ones!
