DIY sewing kit in a nutella jar

If you like Nutella (and how can you not??) 

you'll love the unique shape of its jar.

This sewing kit in a jar was made for a girl that loves Nutella a lot. And love to sew, too.
Two birds with one stone kind of gift!

Using an empty Nutella jar (the large one) - uh, and in Italy the jars are made of glass, not plastic as in the US. 

I used a pretty purple and off white fabric for the top lid turned pincushion,
glueing around the top bias tape and ribbon.
I covered a regular 4-holes button with a small piece of fabric cutout from the bias tape, and sew the button in the center of the bow. 

pincuscion to be!

I used some felt in different colors to make a needle book, the scissors cover,
an embellishment for the thimble and a star to pin the safety pins.
Everything has been edged in mattress stitch in contrasting color using embroidery thread.
