SEW & TELL: DIY Sewing Kit Gift Box

DIY Sewing Kit Gift Box - homeworkHello friends! Today I’m sharing this quick and inexpensive gift idea. A Sewing Kit Gift Box.





DIY Sewing Kit Gift Box - homeworkNot only did my son move to college recently but I have many,many friends moving their kids into dorm rooms too. As we gathered up our lists and compared notes of what we were getting them for their rooms, I realized that none of us thought of a sewing kit. That’s probably because not many of our kids know how to even sew on a button. Regardless, I thought it would be fun to send off a few of these cute sewing kits to some of my friend’s kids. I’m planning on making a guy version too that’s not quite as girly looking.
