travel sewing kit

I found a vintage travel sewing kit at a boot sale, but the contents were fit for the bin: bent pins, rusty needles, brittle plastic crochet hook….

Here is a list of contents (from left to right).  The whole thing is mere 4.5″ square

  • 40″/ 1m tape measure (imperial one side, metric the other)
  • chalk marker
  • larger crochet hook
  • thimble
  • embroidery scissors
  • bodkin
  • needle case + needles
  • fine crochet hooks
  • awl
  • pins
  • safety pins
  • press studs
  • hooks and eyes
  • hosiery darning thread
  • thread plaits

Right, now I’m off to pack the rest of my suitcase!
