Here is what I sent -
Lindsay mentioned that she wanted to learn to sew. I can't teach her to sew but I can set her up with a kit to learn to embroider.
I got three boxes from Hobby lobby and hand stitched them. It was important for me to send her a kit, but also something that I made so if she doesn't choose to learn to embroider, at least she has something pretty.
1 hand stitched 8'x8' box containing full kit
1 hand stitched box to hold floss
1 hand stitched box to hold needles and sharps
2 vintage gold sharps
14 various Sullivan's floss colors and floss bobbins
1 6” embroidery hoop
2 tear away stablizers
2 pieces of fabric
1 Aunt Martha's pattern pack
The only thing I didn't include was a scissor.
I really enjoyed doing making this and putting it all together. 95% of the time I'm making things for other people. I don't remember the last thing I made for myself, let alone finished.
It's really just more fun this way. I like to make stuff then give it away.
