I have filled it with little bits and bobs that a quilter and novice knitter would love to have. See the Brittany knitting needles sticking out of the top? They are the best. Yarn just seems to glide across them and they have a very soft feel in your hands. You can knit for hours and not get tired. (You may get bored, but your hands will feel great.)
And you don't have to stop with just filling the jar! You can add things to the outside and tie them up with a pretty bow and add to the joy!
The one that I received contained all sorts of wonderful treats. It is amazing how many things you can get into such a small jar. It fairly defies the laws of nature.
The possibilities are endless, I tell you! You could make a yo-yo kit, with a Clover yo-yo maker and some sweet pre-cut circles layered in the jar, needles and thread all ready to make a pillow, small art quilt or a garland.
Or how about a knitting jar? Punch a hole in the top, add an eyelet (to prevent rough edges), fill the jar with some yummy yarn, pull a bit through the top and tie the needles around the outside. Your yarn will never travel across the floor again!
Or, you could make an embroidery jar, with linen and floss and an assortment of needles.
Or, what about a doll kit? Include a pattern, fabric, stuffing, needle, thread and an assorment of embellishments to make a sweet little doll. Perfect for a young girl just learning to sew. How about clothespin dolls? Even simpler!
See? I told you the possibilities are endless! You could even make them for the men in your life- fishing jars, snack jars, make-your-own-tie jars, things-to-do-when-your-wife-is-antiquing jars. My mind is a whir of ideas! I'm going to fill some jars now.
