A sewing kit is a great gift for anyone leaving home.

Materials:

Directions

  1. Cut notches in the edges of a small piece of card and wind thread around it, sticking the ends down with scotch tape.
  2. Cut out two squares of felt.
  3. Loosely sew the buttons, hooks and eyes, and snaps to one square, knotting them each individually.
  4. Push the pins and needles through the other square. Place everything inside the tin. Et voila!

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. : )
