Matchbook Sewing Kit Pattern

As promised in my earlier Matchbook Sewing Kit post, here’s the free pattern and tutorial for making your own handy-dandy sewing kit.

I really wanted to thought I should make a tutorial for this sewing kit, but in all honesty, I’m entirely too lazy busy cranky to take all the photos and write all the steps.

Actually, I’m not all that cranky right now — but if I took all the photos and wrote all the steps, I’d be very very cranky.  Which, according to Mr. Jivvy,  is something you don’t want to see.

So I’m doing you a kindness by not providing the tutorial.

It’s a selfless act, really.

However, there’s no crankiness involved in providing the free pattern… and I’m quite certain that with all the pictures in the original post, you won’t even need a tutorial.

As promised (a long, long time ago), here’s the free pattern (yes, you need all three PDF files).

    Thank you so much for this information and the pdf files.

    My DGD sometimes goes by “B” so I am always looking for pics of bees and skeps, and this is perfect!

    Learn how to write a pattern please before you state that what you are showing is one. This is merely a diagram and nothing more. People annoy me when they don’t test their patterns first to see if it can be followed by others – that is if this was your intention. You assumed too much and missed a whole bunch of information. What card stock did you use? Is everything shown in the diagram glued to a real match book or does thing stand on it own for starters. Pat

      I’m fine with calling it a “diagram and nothing more.” 😉

      There’s no “real match book” involved. The pieces in the pattern diagram are glued to each other. I didn’t use card stock, but rather paper. Slightly heavier than typical computer paper. However, someone on Craftster did make one with standard computer paper.
