Airplane Friendly Mini Sewing Kit

Airplane Friendly Mini Sewing Kit

"It's very difficult to sew on an airplane because most scissors aren't allowed through security. With just a little creativity I was able to make this kit that has traveled through airports in several different countries with me without a single question. This is an easy project and a great way to use up some scrap fabric. This is also a perfect gift for your traveling friends and family, and takes up very little room in the carry-on."

Now this is a great idea an airplane friendly mini sewing kit! An easy scrap fabric project that would be a perfect gift idea for anyone who travels and would like to have some sewing notions for mending emergencies. The dental floss container is brilliant to use as a thread dispenser and thread cutter.

This looks so handy! I would love to have something like this for when I travel. My regular sewing box is way too big, but this little cutie is perfect!

This is absolute genius ... Using the dental floss container as a way to cut your thread, and winding some thread on the empty floss spool, or just cutting a regular thread spool with the little cutter that is on the floss container. The pattern instructions are very clear and easy to follow and create! What a great little stocking stuffer gift this would make.... And a nice bridal gift or bridesmaids gift too! Thanks for a great project idea!
