Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Project - Sewing Kits

Samaritan's Purse sponsors one of my favorite charity projects – Operation Christmas Child   (shoeboxes full of gifts).  My children’s group at church is hosting a packing party this year with a goal of 150 shoeboxes.  I have been shopping all year for items to go into the boxes.  One of my projects for the 10-14 girl boxes is sewing kits. 



I have included a piece of fabric (donated), buttons, sewing needles, safety pins, measuring tape, and thread in two colors.  I purchased cones of thread last year and had plenty left for this year.  I wound it onto floss bobbins.  I had purchased the measuring tapes in bulk last year and still have enough for one more year.  I am still searching for a deal on scissors.  Right now I have less than $1 in each kit.  These will make nice additions to the older girl shoeboxes!

Great sewing kits! I love them. Last year I wound the thread by hand onto cardboard. This year I definitely will be purchasing bobbins :)
