Quick and Easy Mending Kits

This past Monday I taught a little class about mending to a group of 10 and 11 year old girls.

Since we had a small budget, I put together inexpensive mending kits for each of the girls, inspired by a video tutorial on Martha Stewart.

Is there no end to the wonderful uses of the humble Mason jar?

A Mason jar mending kit makes a wonderful gift for a friend, a newlywed, or a student heading off to college.

They are quick and easy to put together and SO much prettier, and more useful, than the cheap, toss-away kits sold at the grocery store.

  • These are simply adorable…everyone needs a mending kit with everything in one place! These would make a wonderful shower favor, too! Darn, which I had seen this before I starting making favors for a shower tomorrow, but am keeping this in mind for the next one! Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!


    These are so adorable.
    looks like they would be neat gifts for anyone

    I always see the cutest things on your site that I would like or would love to give to a friend. I have an idea for you.Why don’t you sell a couple of the needle keepers or mending kits etc on your site and use the funds to buy more materials for your girls group that you are teaching? It would be a win win situation all around I think.
