Looking for quick, pretty, and practical gifts to make for Christmas? Our Travel Sewing Kit is a handy kit for sewists, travellers, or to carry in your handbag for wardrobe malfunctions. It can also be used as a small pouch to hold coins, ear buds, USB sticks, or other small items. It is a fun scrap buster pattern and can be easily made in under 1 hour.
Today I spent and enjoyable morning in my sewing room, making Travel Sewing Kits. After the sewing, I enjoyed searching through my vintage haberdashery supplies to find the perfect items to include in my photographs.
I made this Travel Sewing Kit using one exterior fabric rather than a patchwork exterior (as shown in the pattern). This one features some pretty Atsuko Matsuyama fabric from the 30’s Collection by Yuwa Fabrics and I wanted to showcase the fabric. Who can resist those sweet strawberries and polka dots?
When open, the Travel Sewing Kit has room for pins/needles, safety pins, buttons and more. It even has room to store some petite scissors – perfect for crafting on the go!
If you would like to make your own, head over to our Craftsy or Etsy store to purchase the pdf pattern which is available for immediate download. You can see more photos of our Travel Sewing Kit here.
