    I had a pile of jean scraps and I decided to make a little scrap bag for my sewing table.

    I always put my thread scraps in my mason jar...so I made this little bag to hold my mason jar.

    I even lined the inside of it with a leftover fabric. I really like the fabric...sure wish I had more of it.

    That is very cute with the jeans...I keep old buttons, wooden spools of thread, and snippets from quilts I've made in mason jars :)

    Cute. What do you do with the thread when the jar is full?

    This is TOO cute for words! I also like the lining fabric, too bad you don't have any more.

    I would have said that, but then someone would post and tell me I need to cut them a certain size otherwise I'll kill a bird or something.

    I see a few pins stuck to the side--what if you filled a small pillow with pin cushion medium (wool or I like to use bird grit)and put it in the jean pocket for a handy pin cushion.

    I would like to know the dimensions for your scraps. I would like to make this bag also. What size mason jar do you use--pint? Thanks in advance. Very cute.

    I didn't measure anything...just grabbed the butt pocket of a pair of jeans and threw it together.

    Yes, the mason jar is the pint size.

    The birds around here don't pick it up. I've put out yarn, thread, and thin fabric cuttings, but it just blows around the yard and looks messy.

    That bag is too cute!
