Sewing Kits for my Boys

I completed the sewing kits in time for Christmas. And they were very well received. 
I wanted to use tins, rather than baskets, to hold all of the notions. To avoid the smaller bits from getting lost. I just happened to find these retro fridge tins, the perfect size AND the perfect colours.


I am so pleased that one of the consistent things my boys have asked me for over the months, has been Their Own sewing kits. 

 Mr Turtle has a narwhal for his needle wallet image. And he chose for his kit to be blue.

 Little Pipkin has an echidna for his needle wallet image. And he chose for his kit to be red.

I thought they could further embellish and blanket stitch their needle wallets themselves, down the track. To really make them,  Their Own .

 I also gifted my boys, a selection of coloured wool felt pieces, to use as they pleased.

Little Pipkin has been making since Boxing Day. I took this photo this morning. 
He is in the process of creating : "a jug to hold lentils, that a baby can throw" (translation - a jug shaped small beanbag).

I am so, darn proud!
