So, before I even knew who I would be sending a parcel to for this year’s Stitching Santa, I made this not-so-little sewing kit. Well, what needlewoman couldn’t do with a new sewing kit?
Made entirely with fabric offcuts from my collection, the pattern comes from Tilda’s Toy Box, although you could easily copy mine just from the photos as it is pretty straightforward.
Hopefully, you can recognise the shape of a house with its front door and a pot plant under the window.
A little robin perches on the sign above the door which, instead of the house name, says “Sewing Kit”.
The whole thing is quilted with a layer of wadding to add support.
Inside, there is a heart shaped pin cushion and two little pockets…..
…..a place to store hand sewing needles and embroidery scissors.
I’m adding my new labels to my handmade things now.
Including some “Handmade With Love” labels, buttons, pins and needles (all from my own supplies) will make the sewing kit more complete.
I haven’t included any scissors though, as I think I’m going to spend the whole budget on some fabric – a good pair of embroidery scissors could use it all up!
How are you getting on with your handmade gifts this year?
