Alteration: Altoids Smalls Sewing Kit


I sew and repair on a regular basis so have this kit with me every day. With the assistance of a number of 3/16″ rare earth magnets superglued down, the tin will hold itself open and attach to metal surfaces, and the only things to fall from it while open–even inverted–are the two extra [plastic] buttons. The contents of the kit include:

– 8 needles of varying size

– 25 steel pins

– 6 safety pins of varying size

– 1 steel thimble

– 2 steel spools of approx. 20ft of black nylon upholstery thread each
