You might not know your way around a sewing machine, but you don’t have to when you’re making minor alterations or sewing on loose buttons. Depending on the scale of your DIY clothing projects, you may need a small sewing kit for travel and emergencies, or a more comprehensive basket that has everything you need for a simple tailoring job. Finding just the right kit for your DIY projects is easy if you know what you’re looking for.
