Repurposed Jar - pincushion and organizer

I like saving the glass jars from salsa, spaghetti sauces, or pickles for my art or sewing projects.

With a pickles jar, i created a sewing accessories organizer with a pin cushion on top.

Here is the finished product

made pockets

All the things that went into this project

the other side, with a button and elastic band to hold the pockets together

tada! a very handy organizer!
