Before we get to our Moda Blog Hop winner I wanted to show you this fun project that I think might appeal to you quilty types!
The jadeite Show Toppers might be my favorite color so I was super excited when we added plain rings in jadeite to the product set. (They'll start shipping next month.) I especially love how cute they are when paired with Baby Jane fabrics. It's so vintage while still being bright and fun!
There is definately more than one way to make a pincushion atop a jar, but for this one I used what I call my double-lid-technique because as a home canner, I happen to be swimming in used jar lids! This method requires no sewing and results in a clean look without any exposed raw edges of fabric.
First, take one square of fabric from a charm pack, or cut a 5" square of fabric. This size is perfect! Then lay your filling on top.
Place your fabric and filling over the lid ring and start to position it inside.
Add your first lid and start to push the stuffing and fabric through the ring.
When you get it looking good, use hot glue to tack down the raw edges. Be sure to pay attention to the narrow margins between the corners. We don't want any edges popping out at a later date!
I left my cushion removeable so that I can change it out for different seasons... or just fun. If you want yours to be permanent inside the ring, add some hot glue to hold it in there. To create your perfectly finished look, glue the second lid right over the top.
You will still have plenty of threading to screw the ring onto your jar. If you make one of these cuties (even with other supplies) share it with us on the Cosmo Cricket facebook page. We love to feel like we've inspired people and to get inspiration from you all too!
Now for our winner, please congratulate:
