At CHA back in January, one company was giving away these cute little emergency sewing kits. I stashed mine, knowing it might come in handy but also thinking it would be cute to alter or somehow include in a project! Today's theme, Patterned Papers are Sew Fun, seemed like the perfect occasion.
This Poppy Prints designer paper was a great match for a shiny metal thimble! I used a small piece of red polka dot print to cover to logo of the little sewing kit, tied it onto the card front with some stitched grosgrain ribbon, and embellished it with a button tied with crochet cotton thread and a metal snap. I included some machine-stitching along the edges of the sentiment, as well as some pins, needle and thread.
This idea would be perfect for prom, a wedding, or any special performance where prevention of wardrobe malfunctions is desirable! ;)
