Craft a Sewing Kit with SEI

Sometimes I like practical gifts, not all the time...but sometimes. Especially, when I am thinking, "man, a mini perfume spray would be the perfect solution to mask my bbq smoke-filled hair and clothes. So, today's project is a perfect little trinket that can come in handy wherever you are.

I found the most adorably tiny little sewing kit and matching frame at Target, and I thought this would be a fun gift to give to any lady on the go (you never know when you'll need to mend something). To create this kit and chalkboard memo frame combo, I used pattern papers from the Blooms and Blossoms Envelope album kit because they were the perfect scale for such a small project.
Look at how perfectly all the little notions fit in the teeny tiny tube. To make it easy to find in your purse or bag, pick a fun print like the chevron pattern and line the inside of the container with it. Then pick a contrasting color to wrap around the lip of the lid.
This little frame is super handy for making little notes to yourself about your sewing projects. I trimmed a chalkboard label into a square and embellished it with some patterned paper and photo corners from Blooms and Blossoms Envelope album kit. Best part about the frame? It's so cute and useful, that you'll never lose your measurements again! 
Coordinate your kit components with matching papers and colors! I wrapped the button bag and threads in yellow houndstooth print paper and added a pink contrast to them to go with the kits color scheme!
