Sewing kit, travel, thimble, embroidery scissors, kraft matchbox, hand stamped, black archival ink

This gorgeous light-weight travel sewing kit is the perfect size for any handbag, purse or pocket. Made from sturdy paper-mache kraft card, this little matchbox is hand stamped with a thimble and a pair of embroidery scissors using black archival ink and decorated with cotton fabric tape.

The entire kit weighs a mere 30grams and measures approximately 5cm x 4cm x 2cm, or 2" x 1.6" x 0.8".

Wondering how much can fit in a matchbox?

2 x new sewing needles
2 x new glass-topped pins
3 x safety pins, various sizes
1 x press-stud
2 x small white buttons
1 x fold-away scissors
1 x aluminum needle threader
1 x tiny wooden peg
1 x teeny tiny wooden cotton reel
approx. 1m white cotton thread
approx. 1m black cotton thread

This listing is for one complete travel sewing kit as pictured.

* As well as natural variations in the wooden and recycled paper products I use, my work also has unique imperfections that are a result of the hand stamping process.

PLEASE NOTE! Due to NZ Post's outrageous new price hikes, shipping for my sewing kits has increased. I am, however, very happy to post these Economy Air, which is about 2 weeks slower but a few dollars cheaper. If you would prefer Economy shipping please convo me before placing your order and I will put up a custom order for you.
