Write a report, review some files, develop a database, fix a shoe.
Because when a lady is only partway through her day, and you have two more meetings to attend, you have GOT to get that shoe fixed.
And lucky for my co-worker, I happened to have a sewing kit in my bag. So, I stitched up her broken elastic just fine enough to hold until she can get it repaired properly. Her only request was that she could make it through the work day, and then make it through the grocery store on the way home!
Do you keep a sewing kit in your bag? When have you had to use it?
This little travel kit is made up of notions that came from this summer's auctions and estate sales...
I made it myself.
I will probably never make another one. I made it just because.
It's filled with all the things you need in a sewing emergency (or a shoe emergency). There is a little place for scissors.
There is a tiny container of assorted buttons and a thimble.
There is a little box full of tiny spools of thread.
And a place for pins, needles and snaps.
And it all rolls up into a compact little kit to put in your purse or your desk.
And I want one of you to have it.
Leave a comment before Friday September,28th at midnight and I will draw a name. I will send you this little custom sewing kit that I created with my own hands...for your own hands.
Perhaps it will bring with it the joy of past seamstresses, tucked away in time, tucked away in your handbag or desk.
