Paper sewing kits
This is a little sewing kit I got at a thrift store and it's contents. I bought it really for the pattern. I thought it was very clever and something that could be made using rubber stamps etc.
Folded it is 4"X3 1/4" from longest point to point is 12"
What do you think?
The third photo is of the thread that we used to find in these kits where you'd pull the stand that you are trying to match to the mending job and the other colors stay intact. Remember that stuff?
I also got a huge spool of that thread and was wondering if some of you might like to have some and try to make up a couple of sewing kits. I think about 12" of the thread folded fits in nicely and a little plastic zip bag with a needle, safety pin, spare button would be just enough.
Notice on the unfolded photo that there is a half round tab on the short side, it fits into a cut curve on the other side. You'd place little bag and thread on it and fold that side up and close with the tab. On the "wings" that fold there is also a tab which fits into the design on the other wing to hold it all snug.
