In my blogging and sewing journey, people have been so generous and kind. I have received unused fabric from friends, family, and strangers. Every time I feel so blessed! Now that we’re done with school, I want to give back. I have young kids so a lot of volunteer and service opportunities are a little out of reach for me (Having young kids is a service opportunity in and of itself), so I look for other ways. One of my favorite ways to benefit the world and people is to purchase from Uncommon Goods. Their mission is to be environmentally friendly and socially responsible. They donate money every time you purchase, and everyone involved in the process is treated fairly, even the artists and small manufacturers from around the world. (On each product page you can read where it was made!)
Uncommon Goods not only has interesting items, they also have great gifts. I always go to them whenever I need a gift for someone that is really hard to give to because their items are so unique. I love their food kits for the foodies in my life. They also have great baby shower gifts and baby gifts. It’s really easy to send gifts from their website, so it’s perfect for long distance friends and family.
I am a crafter and/or a sewist (#obvi) so my favorite thing is their craft kits. I want to try every single one! I narrowed it down to ten of my favorite crafty items, and I’m sure you can find something for your crafty SIL or your sewing friend. Enjoy!
1. Indigo Textile Dye Kit – Indigo dyed fabric is super trendy right now. It’s a beautiful and organic fabric. I love all the different patterns you can create. With this kit you can create your own scarf and experiment with some beautiful indigo dye. I would love to try dyeing fabric!
