starter sewing kit

So (sew), I made this little starter kit for a Novice Quilter's birthday.
  
A few of the basics, a geeky wrist pincushion (which is incredibly convenient, by the way) and some of my favorite tools. Happy Sewing.

How To Make A Starter Sewing Kit
  1. Find yourself a small box, crate, pouch or other vessel to hold the sewing goodies. It doesn't have to be fancy like this one, although this does help keep everything organized. I found it at Jo Anns.
  2. Gather the essentials. I included some buttons, a measuring tap, hand needles, sewing scissors, a pencil, Fray Check, stitch ripper, thread, a pincushion and a thimble.  Feel free to include anything else that might be useful for someone just getting started.
  3. Well that's it! You could also include an easy sewing pattern, inspiring book or a quilting magazine!
