Hi everyone. Today I have a few new kits going up in the shop. I was just piddling around in my stamp room and started pulling out sewing themed items. A little of this, a little of that and before you know it, I had a handful of kits put together. Note: Kits are very limited and once they are sold out they will not show up on the home page of my Etsy shop. I might make more in the future but I probably won't have any more in stock any time soon. I was inspired by all of the fun items I've collected that are perfect for a sewing themed kit. Seeing them all together in once basket makes me want to dive into my sewing projects and make sewing themed cards and gifts for all my crafty friends.
I found these small wooden spools at my favorite antique shop. They're perfect for wrapping lace and ribbon around.
Papertrey's Vintage Buttons make the perfect flower center for some homemade doodads. I used old sewing patterns and an old school text book for the circles. The little scissors were my grandma's.
These old patterns were found at various garage sales. You can pick them up super cheap. The aged tissue paper patterns are so soft and crinkly. I love to make doodads with them or how about using an entire sheet to tuck in a gift sack as tissue. The old buttons are always a fun find at garage sales and antique stores.
This unique sewing basket just had to come home with me one day from an antique shop. The interesting handle and the fabulous green color had my name sewn all over it. See that spool of wide lace to the left. It was all in tact and had tons of yardage on it. It's aged, creamy color is just perfect for accent a gift sack or envelope.
These three vintage clothespin hangers are treasures of mine. I look for them everywhere I go. I think they're just adorable. There are tons of patterns out for these now too if you want to customize one for yourself.
This old ironing board was a good find for under $10 bucks. I keep my old sewing machine on it for when I want to sew on cards.
So for my sewing kits, I tucked in a few items from my stash of goodies. Soft pastel colors on all the accents and papers will make for some beautiful projects. Perfect for the sewing enthusiast who loves to get crafty!
There's lots of little items to create your own doodads.
Here's a few of the pieces compiled so you can get a few ideas of what you can create. There's lots of fun accents created with Papertrey stamps and goodies.
All the little pieces are layered into a small tin....think of it as a mini sewing kit box. You're sure to find a clever use for it.
Stay tuned for a later post that shows a few projects made using some items from the kit. Thanks for stopping by today. :)
