K is for Kit

There are a ton of cute mason jar sewing kits on pinterest.... and I've been wanting to make one. So I did what any logical crafter would do... I found the perfect excuse to make one!

One of my friends expressed an interest in trying her hand at stitching after I sent her a hand embroidered towel I had made. I told her I was going to put a little kit together for her so she'd have everything she needed. I'm not sure if she believed me... but I got right to it!

Sewing Kit
Embroidery needles, DMC Floss, water soluble pen, needle threaders, scissors, pins (not really needed for embroidery but they kind of pull it all together!).
I also included a hoop and a pre-washed & pre-patterened towel.

You can find the pattern here: Mac n' Cheese!
In addition to the kit, I emailed her some tips along with links to videos with stitch tutorials. If anyone is interested in that part, let me know in the comments and I can forward the e-mail you as well ;-)

I don't know if the kit will ever get used, but I had a lot of fun making it and sharing it with you!
