Sewing Notions

I LOVE sewing ... did I mention this already? (LOL) and this month's theme at Gingersnap Creations suits me so well. So, when the new Spicy Supply Challenge was announced ... Sewing Notions ... this immediately triggered images of pins and needles, safety pins, thread, measuring tape, and much more. I have quite a big box for all my sewing supplies but now and again it would be nice to have some emergency supplies ready at hand around the house ... a notions jar seemed to be sort of a solution for this

I used a preserving jar with a wide opening and realtively straight sides. The top and the inside of the top have pincushions attached. First I put all the contents into the jar but everything got entangled very quickly so I constructed an inside 'room divider' using felt and fabric for separating the various bits and pieces. To give it a bit of a friendly feel I added a bit of plain white ribbon which I stamped ... well, this is really all to it ... and it is very handy!
Check out all the other projects from the Gingersnap team, it is amazing what they came up with. Have fun and join us, Petra.

Wonderful Petra - I love it! I saw in a magazine recently something similar as Christmas present ideas - you fill a jar with something or other - and your sewing notions is great - love the pincushion on the lid.
