GIFTS FOR THE SEAMSTRESS
Okay seamstresses, help me out. I’ve always been a believer in not buying an artist (or any hobbyist) supplies for her work. Because, come on, she could do a lot better picking out those things for herself. That said, I do think there are some options that don’t really involve supplies and would really make a girl happy. What do you think of these?
A couple things from this list from The Purl Bee, like maybe the goat leather thimble or glasshead pins or custom tags.
A bagful of vintage buttons or a few fun vintage trims (photos via inside a black apple and inchmark). Or maybe just a big card of buttons like this one from here.
A pin cushion. Like this handmade one or this awesome but out-of-my-price-range ring (found via here). (See my pin cushion roundup for more.)
A fun book. Like Weekend Sewing or The Gentle Art of Domesticity or Button it up. Or really anything reviewed at The Purl Bee.
Tickets to some kind of craft or clothing show (check out a few that might be in your area here).
