Sewing Kit

Melissa from Bursts of Creativity recently featured a week’s worth of dollar store crafts on her blog. It’s amazing what some scrapbook paper and Mod Podge can do to everyday items! This craft would be great for Mother’s Day, a bride-to-be or a frequent traveler.  It would also make a cute, customizable gift for anyone who is just learning to sew.  [How to make a gift box sewing kit]
