Who hasn’t had a button pop at an inopportune time? Over the weekend when my own button popped I then had to search for the scissors, thread and sewing needle which were scattered around my craft studio. That night, I finished off a container of dental floss and would normally have tossed it into the garbage, but I had an epiphany: what if I made a portable sewing kit using the empty container? It already had a built in ‘thread’ cutter and I could store thread and a needle all in one convenient spot!

Step 2: On the Fly Repairs; Travel With It!
I think this kit would be great to carry in a bag for minor sewing repairs on the fly (it would also make a great travel item). Airports don't allow scissors on board a plane, but I don't see why this little kit wouldn't be acceptable for air travel. However if you get stopped at airport security with it, you'll have to let me know!
