Travel Sewing Kit

Don't you just hate it when your out and about and spot a loose button or a thread hanging on yourself or one of your kids? What do you mean no? Surely I can't be the only one who almost always has one of those little plastic sewing kits in my purse? Well maybe I am, but I love my kits and think that they're brilliant, but soooo ugly, so I've made myself this little travel sewing kit.

I've filled it with these cute little accessories

This is how it looks from the side

And just to show that it does all fit in there

Purple Cows Guilotine
Martha Stewart Scoreboard
Tim Holtz Blender Tool
X-cut Border Punch

Images - Dragon's Lair Designs
Cardboard (I used the back of an old sketch pad)
Papers - K&Co Hopscotch
Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Victorian Velvet, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye
Velcro - from stash
Buttons - Woodware
Glossy Accents
Sentiment - computer generated
Promarker fine liner
Promarkers - Blender, Gold, Silver, Pear Green, Sunkissed Pink & Walnut
Sewing bits n bobs from my ugly plastic kit :)
