A sewing kit is not only a great gift idea, but also a nice item to have in your purse or desk at work. This is a guide about homemade sewing kits.
A sewing kit is a great gift for anyone leaving home.

What a cute idea!
I used one of those very thin (business-card-size) magnets and stuck it to the outside. (You can use the ones that come as a product promotion and cut it to size.) Watch the magnetic fields. It's handy for keeping the needles inside the metal tin.
These make GREAT gifts to homeless folks, AND for keeping one for the car and camping/traveling. I'd add a tiny pair of folding scissors or a SAFETY COVERED straight-edge razor blade for cutting. Going a step further, one could thread several needles in different colors of thread as is sold in local stores in a package for about $2.00. Saves a lot of frustration when away from home or if having
poor vision. God bless you. : )
I've been looking for something to do with those containers...thanks alot! Great Idea!
One way to reuse prescription bottles is as a portable sewing kit. Put a spool of thread into the bottle, pierce a small hole in the lid and run the thread end out the lid. Put several needles and pins, however many you might need, inside.
I work for a guy who I know couldn't sew on a button to save his life. I made him a little sewing kit with pre-threaded needles (I threaded them) in black and white, and extra shirt buttons. I then taught him to sew a button, and he now has everything he needs at his fingertips.
