Last month I put together this sewing kit for a friend's daughter. Her birthday party is today, so I hope that she likes it. Her mom said that she really wanted a sewing kit, so I knew that I needed to be the one to make her one. I found the cute little purse at Staples. Then I bought a mini sewing kit and put all but the scissors in the bag (tape measure, thimble, sewing needles, and mini spools of thread). The scissors were horrible. They couldn't cut a thing, so I bought a good pair that would fit in the bag. I found some decorative felt and made a simple needle holder out of it. I also bought her some extra needles since the ones that came with the kit were really small. Then I made her a bottle cap pincushion. I put a rainbow of pins in it. The primary colors are butterfly pins, and the secondary colors are flower pins. The pincushion doesn't fit in the bag, but thats ok. I hope that she likes it (and that her mom approves). I included one fun thing to play with in her birthday bag as well.
