Did you know the online retailer dotcomgiftshop has just rebranded to Rex London. The new website has launched with a fresh new look and it looks amazing. You can still find a range of fun and useful products which provide lovely gifts at affordable prices.

I particularly like the range of sewing kits. We were sent the Make and Sew Suitcase to review. It is a really pretty case of sewing materials which would be the perfect gift for an older child who wants to get into sewing. There is really everything you need to get started and is brilliant because you can store everything in the pretty box to keep it together.

The kit contains

  • Scissors
  • Tape Measure
  • Buttons (x 8)
  • Needle Kit (3 needles)
  • Pins (x 40)
  • Stuffing
  • Felt (5 colours)
  • Ribbon  (2 colours)
  • Sewing Thread (4 colours)
  • Fabric (5 patterns)
  • Embroidery Thread (8 colours)

It came at the perfect time for us as my 8-year-old has just got into sewing. The weather so far this year has been particularly bad so a sewing kit has proved a brilliant distraction. The Make and Sew suitcase costs £19.99 and would be a lovely Birthday present.

In the Make and Sew Suitcase, there is a little book with lots of ideas for things to make. These are quick and easy projects, perfect for the beginner. One of the projects is to make little heart earrings, my daughter loved this so much she made hearts for all the family, each one got bigger and fancier. She also made a cute piggy bank.
