Pin Cushion made the recycled way Part 2

I have decided to make them this way. I just didnt like the rick rack covering the jar lid. As much I wanted this to clearly be seen as a recycled item. But me the picky person wanted a bit cuter. I mean when they get close enough to it they will pick it up and look at it and know its a baby food jar. Even when they open it. I also wondered how the glue would look on the glass in lets say a years time? Will it yellow? It does not say on the glue itself. So I thought just leave the glass open so you can see whats inside anyhow. I like them much better. I am keeping the one I made yesterday tho. I love pin keeps. I collect ones that strike my fancy and this surely does. I made one with my own ribbon. I just embroidered the letters with my sewing machine and used an plain ecru fabric ribbon. I always forget how to program the letter part on the sewing machine. Its so easy, yet I forget. I am thankful my machine came with a thick manual and a short cut manual. I of course use the short cut manual and it helps me all the time. Remember I purchased this last year? Best sewing machine ever: Bernina Activa 230 Model.
