    I decided to make a new thread to become the continuation of the previous, which was started only for knife sheaths.

    This first project is a sewing kit. The sewing kit needs a wallet to organize my items.

    This kit was designed to be a tri-fold with a single heavy duty snap closure. I made some internal pockets for the needles and the waxed thread. I made it look older with some blue dye on the deer hide pockets. The rest of the wallet is dyed black. The components are as follows:

    • Needle assortment (2 leather needles, 4 regular sewing needles various sizes)
    • Waxed thread
    • Standard thread on bobbin
    • Elastic cord

    I have the needles inside a plastic holder, and the pocket for them is velcro. The standard threaded bobbin is kept in place by a long Chicago screw fixed to the wallet, and I can easily remove the screw and then take the bobbin off, or leave it and use thread from where it is. I think it's a unique concept.

    It isn't too thick or heavy, and I have extra room for adding any necessities later, like buttons or more needles.
