What a Cute Little Idea for a GIFT!

Homemade sewing kit mason jar Christmas gift idea 3

Melissa of Bless this Mess came up with a fun idea that I wanted to share with you. I will be giving these as gifts this Christmas and know they’re going to be a big hit with the ladies in my family.  Rather you sew or not, everyone needs a sewing kit. Buttons fall off, knees rip, zipper come apart, and crotches explode. They all have us scrambling for a needle and thread. But of course, if you don’t sew and have a whole set-up, you can’t find anything and the garment ends up in the “I’ll mend it someday pile”. So, that’s why I got so excited when I read this post on Melissa’s blog. What a cute idea and inexpensive to put together. Pick a fabric that matches the recipient’s home décor and it will definitely end up on display in her house.
