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. Go  here to check out this awesome craft project.
