Do you have a new sewing enthusiast on your gift list? Could it be that sewing lover is you? Here’s a great gift basket idea to give someone who’s just stepped into the world of sewing
I found a pretty little open bag that has lots of inside and outside pockets. It’s just the perfect size to hold all the supplies we wanted to gift her but was not so large that it was problematic.

Sewing enthusiast gift basket:
You can include a small button box in this gift basket. My grandma always said that everyone needs to have a button box and that has always stayed with me. For me, I put a few of the buttons that were in the button box my grandma gave me several years ago to put in my sewing gift basket. I felt it was fitting since the recipient was a young lady beginning her career as a seamstress.
You have to include a couple of pairs of new scissors since the fact is that fabric scissors need to only be used on fabric. These scissors aren’t to be used for anything else.
You can find the Scotch-Brite Lint Roller in the cleaning aisle. At some stores, you can find extreme lint rollers such as Scotch-Brite 50% Stickier Lint Rollers. You might want to include one of these since it can be used to pick up heavier items such as spilled pins and needles.
