Quick and Easy Easter Basket Gifts for the Seamstress

Easter baskets are traditionally filled with candy and trinkets ... little treats after the Lenten fast. But for the sewist in your family perhaps another kind of treat would be more appropriate. 

Fill a plastic egg with a few sewing essentials. Thread, threader, snaps and buttons and a length of stitch witchery and a thimble. Whatever you can find to tuck into an egg. Maybe your sewist is a vintage enthusiast? Fill your egg with vintage notions. Whatever you stuff your egg with will be a treat that travels or comes in handy in an emergency. And what a fabulous last minute addition to an Easter basket and a gift that keeps on giving. 

Happy Passover or Easter from the folks at the Vintage Pattern Marketplace!
