Apples to Oranges - Sewing Kit - Straight Stitch Society


*This is pattern for a sewing kit, not the sewing kit nor a kit to make a sewing kit, just to be clear!* 

Comparing fruit to sewing is like comparing apples to oranges and yet we have brought these two things together in a fruity sewing kit that’s cute enough to eat. It’s got everything you need: a pincushion, a zipper pouch for notions, and an optional needle pad, all buttoned up in a tasty package. Take your pick from a red delicious apple with an embroidered core or a zesty orange with playful appliqu.
