Bamboo steamer baskets make ideal sewing kits – they are the perfect size to hold all the materials and supplies for a small project, are lightweight, and can be stacked. You can find them at Asian supermarkets, chain stores, kitchen stores, or on Amazon. I found this 6 inch steamer at Daiso, the Japanese 100 Yen store – perfect for my steamer sewing kit.

Bamboo steamer baskets have gaps in the bottom for the steam to pass through when cooking. If you are using them to hold small supplies, cut a piece of felt to line the bottom of the baskets, and then fill with your favourite supplies.They are surprisingly roomy – and hold lots of supplies.

I have stacked some of my favourite vintage haberdashery items in my basket – wooden cotton reels, buttons, cloth tape measure, linen thread, handmade lace, scissors and more.

The mini Bonne Maman jars are the perfect size to hold some pins and buttons. I can’t resist the sweet gingham lids. I use a lot of these jars in my sewing room for storage. Check out our Bonne Maman Pinterest page for more ideas on how to use these fun jars.

A sewing kit is a fun gift to assemble for a friend who loves to sew or who is getting started on their sewing/quilting journey. A few carefully selected tools and supplies can ignite creativity. I am going to keep a few steamer baskets ready for when I need to assemble a gift in a hurry.
