This miniature sewing kit is super easy to make and handy to keep around. In fact, this project is so simple that it would be a great one to help teach basic sewing skills. Don’t worry if you’re new to sewing yourself. With the detailed instructions and pictures below, you’ll be enjoying your own miniature sewing kit in no time!
First, you’re going to need to grab some Iron On Transfer Paper for Light Fabric and the free “Sewing Kit” file. Don’t want to use this one? You can also create your own using Maestro Label Designer! Iron on transfer paper is so easy to use. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that all images have to be reversed before printing and ironing onto fabric. I highly suggest following these instructions from OnlineLabels.com before using their transfer paper.
Once you have the design ironed onto the fabric, wait a couple minutes for the paper to cool down and then carefully remove the paper backing to reveal your label. I love this part. It always feels a bit like magic! Fold the fabric over and then trim around the outer edge of the iron on. This will create two identical rectangular pieces of white fabric.
Take the two white fabric pieces and flip them so that the right sides of each fabric are facing inward. Sew a 1/4″ seam around the outer edge. Use pins to keep the fabric pieces lined up correctly if necessary. Leave a 2″ opening at the bottom to flip the piece right side out. Trim the excess fabric from around the corners and flip right side out.
Once your miniature sewing kit cover is flipped right side out, just sew around the edge to secure.
Cut two smaller rectangles from a sheet of craft felt and sew in place along the middle of the cover. Now you can adding sewing needles and pins to your miniature sewing kit!
