Mini sewing kit in a matchbox

Being a light traveller doesn’t mean to eliminate some simple items that can be very helpful about unexpected situations  but to find ingenious ideas to carry the basics with minimum weight and volume possible. A small travel sewing kit can be very useful to sew an unstitched garment or a button without going shopping.


A simple and lightweight solution is to carry a matchbox with the essentials: some thread, a needle, a safety pin, a hook-and-eye closure and some buttons. Thus you will have them always on hand when you need them in a minimum space.
