Sewing made simple. A diy travel sewing kit for non-sewers to sew. Or something like that.

My friend Ben is a crafty seamstress – seamster? – who is on his way to becoming a sewist – “someone who creates sewn works of art, which can include clothing or other items made with sewn elements.” Currently he stitches backpacks together with a craftsmanship I doubt I could master with my current lack of patience. Recently, however, he informed me that he’s decided to make his own clothing. And how could I expect any less from a fine arts major and alumni of my own Alma mater? However, not only will he be making his own clothing, he has also offered to sew together my dresses that have been sitting stalemate for over year at my grandmother’s house. I have several dresses from vintage patterns that I’d bought fabric, thread and notions for and even went so far as to cut out not only the patterns but the fabric. as well. They simply need stitching.
So when I ran across this diy project for making a diy felt travel kitty sewing kit, I thought it’d make an awesome gift for him with his birthday less than a week away. Unfortunately, I’d probably have to man it up a bit. Perhaps with a Peter Rabbit character wearing a bow tie. I’m not sure kitties are his thing.
Anyhow, you can find this fun diy sewing project over at Sew4Home. It’s a super simple project that makes sewing easy and would be great for kids just learning the craft or thread and needle challenged grown ups kind of like me. So swing into your favorite craft store, grab some needle and thread and a collection of colorful felt and get started!

    Eh. I guess it is kind of manly but he has a thing for Peter Rabbit. He always wears this awesome etsy-esque ring with Peter Rabbit on it and I believe his roomies house rabbits.
