Make a Mini Sewing Kit, for your camp box or travel trailer

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another frugal and worthy project from our home to yours. Today I have another project that is a little different for us to offer, but I think you will like it...

We wanted to make sure our little vintage trailer  motorhome is fully stocked. I got the idea to make a mini sewing kit and use a spring hinge eyeglass case to hold the supplies.

Inside you will find:

Pre-threaded sewing needles, along with 2 buttons and small safety pins. These were left-overs from hotel stays and given to me by a co-worker that travels often. But it would be easy to make your own little pouches with notched lightweight cardboard and the same supplies from your big sewing kit. 

Small pair of scissors, a seam ripper, needle threader and a plastic thimble.

Assorted fasteners, large safety pins, and a small keyring. The keyring could be used as a temporary zipper pull if the tab on a zipper broke. 

The kit is small, stays closed with the spring hinge and may help keep your camp-out fun, or at least everyone will be fully clothed and warm.

  3. Thanks Rocquie and Laurie. You can tell I use to be a girl scout about 100 years ago!

  4. I certainly have one in my camper! The key ring is a good idea! I will have to add one to mine!

  5. Liz, we have had our little vintage trailer for about a year now, and I think we are just about ready for another year of fun. Thanks for visiting.

  6. What a great idea to use the eyeglass case! I carry a similar kit in my purse that I put together in an Altoids tin. But yours has more room and would be good for all sorts of places. I love it!

  7. Wonderful post! Youve made some very astute observations and I am thankful for the the effort you have put into your writing. Its clear that you know what you are talking about. I am looking forward to reading more of your sites content.
