Yes, as in Martha Stewart. Really it's all Greenbean's fault since I saw the idea there first and she made it sound so darn easy (link to Martha's version)! And it was!
[A tease for You Can Sew-a-thon at the end of this post!!!]
I also can't usually resist a reason to use a mason jar and fabric together. Plus, I had a tiny tray I am using to organize all this and needless to say the stuff is outgrowing the tray. So here goes...
Next, I traced the lid on cardboard (inserts from a beer case) and cut out the circle which left me with the results below.
The hardest part of this project was picking out what fabric to use. Uhhh, I agonized. Seriously, spent way to much brain power, but in my defense we are still up to our eye balls in house DIY for the new breakfast bar/kitchen pass through and re-painting more than 1/2 the house.... my brain has been on reduced power from it all.
I landed on this pretty red flowered fabric which had those cutie patootie caterpillars on it that I showed you here... deciding that the small print would be best appreciated on the small cushion.
Then I went a little crazy with the batting. I save every last scrap of batting, so pulled out a bunch of pieces and decided I wanted a very fluffy cushion.
I cut the batting in squares and then even rounded the corners a bit.
Are you reading this thinking how is that all going to fit in the limited space in that tiny ring?... if not, then you are like me... I was so optimistic that I would have the fluffiest pin cushion, only to realize after a large amount of hot glue was in place that this wasn't all fitting. Go me!
