I was given a sewing kit a long time ago - a small travel kit that I still use today - it holds lots of lovely memories for me and reminds me of my friend who gave it to me as well as being useful. I made my first travel sewing kit as a leaving momento for a colleague and she loved it and so I have started to make more as I thought that other people might enjoy them too.
I have made this kit using a mixture of vintage linens threads lace and buttons and some more modern fabrics and ribbon The whole thing has been made by hand stitching with some embroidery - stamping and the inner wool section has been hand dyed to give the right blue that I wanted.
The kit includes a tape measure, fine point scissors, needles, pins - several buttons, safety pins some vintage poppers and hooks and eyes, vintage thimble and some thread. The kit will arrive beautifully wrapped in a pretty hand covered open box and will be ready to give as a present. Where possible I will happily combine postage.
