Love the sewing kit. So will your DD.  I'm with Yetta.  I'd throw in some bandaids.  You can find sewing theme ones.

Fabric marking pencils (dark one and white one) and pencil sharpener. 

Six inch 1/4" wide acrylic ruler for those times when a measuring tape is too much.

Those should make your kit perfect.

The sewing kit is adorable.  I'm not sure I saw this mentioned, but in addition to the good fabric scissors I'd include a thread snip or embroidery scissors.  I've "ruined" many a good pair of fabric scissors by using them to cut thread.

Add a few buttons, and odds and ends of snaps…maybe even some iron on Jean patches if she wears jeans!

could even add a bit of Velcro…..seems we use that for lots of things!

I didn't remember that, Viola.  I know I had it quilted Fall of 2021.  I hope my sister will like it.

Seems that with Christmas coming, I have not only less time to sew but less space.  I have used my long pony wall that divides the living room from the kitchen dining areas a place to cut my fabrics.  It is now mostly covered in Christmas decorations.  It may force me to finish up a couple of projects rather than start new ones.relaxed  I'm easily distracted.  I see a new pattern that I'd like to make and off I go, spawning more UFOs.
