A friend of mine has just bit the bullet and bought herself a brand new sewing machine. So what better excuse to break open a Good Fortune charm pack and make her a beginners sewing kit. I have to admit while I was making all these bits I was so tempted to make another set for myself. I got as far as the apple pin cushion and now I'm happy. :)
I got the pattern for the pincushion here. It's really simple and the tute is awesome with a printable template too. I had to make a couple more just for fun. There is also a pear version if that's more your thing.
For all those bits and bobs that come with sewing I made this little pouch. I just made it up as I went so I don't have any measurements to share. I machine embroidered her name along the side for that personal touch which I love to add.
Also had to add a little sewing kit. I made one for myself a while back and found it so practical. It's not to replace a sewing box or anything but whenever I need a needle and thread this baby always has my back!! ;)
I also put together a scissor pouch. Always handy to have and with kiddies that can reach pretty much anything this baby gives you a couple more minutes to catch them in the act before they get that button open.
Picked up this vintage basket, ...
finished up with a bow and this little parcel is in it's new home, being used to make all kinds of pretty things.
Be sure to stick around I'll be posting a tutorial for the mini sewing kit in the new year!!
