Altered Milk Glass Container for LESSology's Sewing Challenge

Found this milk glass jar at a second hand store the other day. 

It happened to be the ONLY thing I walked out with that day, believe it or not. I sometimes have a case of the pickies! 

Honestly I didn't even have a plan of what I was going to use it for. I just really liked it!

After staring at it for a while, I decided it either needed a label or for me to build a little scene on the very flat top. 

I opted to go with the more difficult idea of course. 

I actually had that green fake grass & trees left over from a previous project my son did for school. The little mushrooms & fairy I picked up at a local greenhouse. 

I added in a little hand dyed lace to match the fairy and the spool tassel. The spool tassel idea I found on pinterest although I like hers a whole lot better than mine. But I have a ton of spools so no doubt will try that idea again. ;-)

This is also a great photo to see how I cheated. That Tim Holtz Ornate plate I used was originally flat. I used a dead blow hammer & anvil to get the curved look. Had to fill it in with hot glue to get it to stay. ;-)

And another photo of the whole project again!

Sew Much Fun!

And what you ask will I be using this awesome container for? I need a small spot to stash my pin cushion, a seam ripper and a few other sewing things. I am hoping this jar makes my sewing machine hate me just a little less....

Won't you play along with us over at LESSology for our sewing challenge?
