for the girls to show you.
College daughter asked for
a sewing kit
2 years ago.
I refused to buy one. "Oh, I'd love to make one up."
I had grandiose sewing kit thoughts
of elaborate, darling pin cushions and needlecases,
and then what was I going to put it all in???
Just wasn't happening.
Then Des did a post this summer and
her kit was quite doable.
Kind of changed my kit thoughts.
my daughter just wants to
sew on a button,
not change the world.
So there is:
a little pincushion
Handy Pebble needles.
And I didn't have to make a needlecase!
Didn't really want spools in there,
so I wound thread on a couple of bobbins,
they fit in with the pins.
And little scissors.
Figured if they are cute and not very utilitarian,
maybe they'll stay with the kit.
I liked their pincushions so much,
I made me a little travel one.
Love the ground walnut shells for filling.
I have a couple of pincushions that are filled with fluff and
when you pull the pin out
the pincushion comes with it,
because it's not heavy enough to stay.
Not these, they stay put.
In the shop, we carry:
and Pebble Needles.
I also have tape measures and seam rippers
(if you need any let me know).
Got the scissors in Mexico.
Container is a school pencil box.
College girl is leaving tomorrow. :(
I'll take comfort in knowing
she won't still be mending
with her stapler!
