Tiny Sewing Repair KitI made this little thread holder to use in my Felt Monster Sewing Kit, however I realized that it would also work really well as a stand alone item. It is small enough to fit in your wallet or almost anywhere. Now it will be easy to sew a loose button back onto your clothing or fix a seam.



  • mini craft sticks (Woodsies 2 1/2" x 3/8" x 1/12")
  • hot glue gun
  • felt
  • scissors
  • thread
  • sewing needle


  1. Take two mini craft sticks and apply a small amount of hot glue to the middle of one stick. Then adhere the sticks together. Be sure to press them together firmly so that there isn't much of a gap between them.
  2. glue stick together
  3. Cut a narrow strip of felt long enough to wrap around the middle of the sticks. Apply a small amount of glue and adhere the end of the felt, wrap it around the sticks and glue it in place, trimming off any excess felt.
  4. attach felt strip
  5. Slip the end of the thread in between the two sticks, then begin wrapping the thread around. Once you have a good amount of thread on the sticks, cut it loose from the spool. Now slide the loose end in between the sticks to keep it from unraveling.
  6. wrap thread 1
    wrap thread 2

  7. Repeat on the other end with another color of thread.
  8. wrap thread 3
  9. The felt strip around the middle is the perfect place to store a spare needle. After inserting the needle through the felt, simply nestle the tip of the needle into the thread to keep it from poking you unexpectedly.
  10. add needle

Add a couple of safety pins to the felt. Sometimes you need a safety pin to fix something instead of sewing it.
