New Jennifer Jangles Boutique Sewing Kits

by Jennifer Jangles November 04, 2014


Hey Hey! Wanting to share something I have been working on for a good nine months now. They are a bit like babies to me. I had an idea at the first of the year about designing a line of sewing and craft kits. It started out as a selfish reason I wanted these but grew into something much bigger. Here's how it all happened....

When I travel I like to pack up boxes or bags of things to make when on the road, in a hotel, or airport. It would always take me awhile to decide what to bring and most of the time I would get on the road and then not have everything I needed. I needed a kit.

Now when I shop anywhere... quilt shops, gift shops, bookstores....etc. What do I buy? Arts and craft supplies. I usually wished there was more to buy than what I could find.

Now all of this thinking made me realize there was a need for kits. Kits that have everything, kits that were for all ages, kits that were for all sewing levels. One thing led to another and here I am, introducing to the world my line of sewing and crafting kits.


I had some very precise ideas about how I wanted everything to be and so it was an easy decision to produce these myself.

Oh boy, was it a learning curve. I designed and produced yards and yards of fabric for the kits. Really nice fabric I must say, it 100% cotton quilting fabric, washes beautifully and the colors are vibrant. Can you tell I love the mill I worked with?

My wools are hand dyed here in the US by a small company, the felts are wool blends, the thread(yes needle and thread come with) are also 100% cotton. I wanted everything top notch quality for you. That's where the word boutique comes in.



Packaging was ridiculously hard for me. I wanted small and easy to tote. I didn't want any excess packaging to save on waste down the road. But of course it had to be cute. Seriously, my printer Lisa, deserves a gold star for working with me. I could not tell you how many times she had to answer questions from me. I'm sure she's enjoying her break from me.


You might have caught a glimpse of them in my Quilt Market booth last week. I was packaging them the night before I left and they came on the plane with me. You can plan all you want but everything always ends up down to the wire for market.


But I am back and super excited to introduce you to the gang Kitty, Sophie, and more. You can see all 12 of them here.

But here are a few of my favorites...
