Sewing kits for a cause…

Hi all,

You only have a short amount of time left to do some sewing kits or even bits of a sewing kit for the New Beginnings appeal. I am sure anything will be appreciated!

I have to say I LOVE these Little Letter Needle Book envelopes. Check out Kelly’s tutorial at Em Ay Kay Ee, it is so cute and really quick to make.

Set one. The tutorial for the sewing caddy can be found here. I left out the hand embroidery because I am painfully slow and I wanted to get them done in this life time!

Set two. The scissor keep is just two 1” hexies sewn together with a bit of stuffing to fill it out, then a button on each side to pull it in. And a bit of ribbon or ric-rac sewn into one edge.

I made matching 1/2” hexie flowers to put on the front of each draw-string bag. 

They went in the post today to Jenny. I hope they will bring some joy and hope to someone who needs it.

Oh my goodness, these sewing bags are so sweet and I'm sure will bring happiness and comfort to someone who has lost everything. I especially love those little needle envelops. I have to make one of those myself.
