DIY sewing kit for the handbag

From time to time I would have a button or two pop (from eating too full or accidentally ripping one off). I decided to make a small sewing kit for my bag. I used an old Laura Ashley clothing tag and cut off a part of the flora part. The card is thick enough to hold the needle without folding. I taped a button with a piece of scotch tape. I also included a metal button, along with some black thread. It's really small, so it fits easily into a simple card case. It's easy to carry it with a clutch or a bigger gym bag.

It's a small detail to be overlooked, but having a sewing kit is pretty important, just in case of a wardrobe malfunction. You'll never know when such things can happen, so it's better to be prepared!
