Sew in Love - Marriage Survival Sewing Kit


Wedding bells are ringing again - so it was time to make a different survival kit. This one was for a bridal shower gift - "Sew in Love" marriage survival sewing kit. I bought a sewing kit along with a few other items and put the following tags on different items in the kit: 
(right click on image, copy and paste to your favorite publishing program and print)

Thread: Love is the thread that binds you together. Sew with threads of kindness, gratitude and patience.
Seam ripper: As you sew, so shall you rip. When you make a mistake you can resolved it and start over again.

Fabric: Family is the fabric of life. Your marriage is the start of your family. Make of it what you will.
Scissors: Cut out the "I" and "MY" and substitute "WE" and "OUR". Every decision must take into consideration that there are two or more affected by it.

Pins:  Avoid ceaseless pinpricking. Generally each of us is painfully aware of our weaknesses and we don't need frequent reminders.
Measuring Tape: Go to great lengths to make your marriage work.

Buttons: Always be open and straightforward with each other. Issues are not resolved through buttoned lips - but rather kind and honest ones.


After printing out the tags, I cut them out and tied them to the corresponding items.


Then I wrapped up the kit and added the description tag.

Survival kits are so much fun to make, and the bonus -  no one else will have the same gift. 
Thanks for stopping by!
