Mason Jar Cross Stitch Pincushion

20130828-212254.jpgI’ve seen these mason jar pincushions around and wanted to make a cross stitched one. My first try using Aida cross stitch fabric was too thick and the lid couldn’t screw on. So I took a pass using waste canvas on a piece of regular fabric and it worked great.

I always end up just using a heart as my default pattern when I’m trying out different projects because I have the pattern already, it stitches up quickly, and it’s cute.

This can be yours to own, it’s available in my Etsy shop.
