  1. Heidi says:

    A kit for placemats, napkins and table runner is perfect, with all the fabrics coordinating.

  2. Eileen says:

    A quilt. I have been sewing for years, but planning and buying fabric for a quilt seems to overwhelm me. If the colors are all coordinated, the pieces are cut , and instructions in front of me, I know I could do it!

  3. Calla Ferguson says:

    I’d like a kit of a complete kitchen ensemble. From the apron to potholders, mixer cover, bowl covers, etc. You would have all coordinating fabrics, patterns & all the trims n things.

  4. Ann F says:

    Fabric bowl With all the peices

  5. Lydia V says:

    Just about anything…no matter what it is, if it doesn’t fit or work for my size or tastes, it can be used for a giveaway or a gift!

  6. Linda T says:

    I would love a kit for a reversible, pieced, quilted casual coat. i have the hardest time picking out fabrics for quilt projects. Thank goodness for pre-cuts.

  7. Debra says:


  8. Caitlin says:

    maybe a over the shoulder ruffle bag!

  9. MelodyJ says:

    a retro inspired skirt.


  10. BJMarley says:

    A purse. In fact I purchased a purse kit from a shop. The package did not indicate that any additional supplies were needed. I was disappointed when I got home and found out that additional stabilizer and other supplies were required. I still haven’t started it.

  11. Chuck says:

    A sleeping bag for two.

  12. Carol Gartrell says:

    A kit with all the pre-cut pieces to a holiday wall=hanging

  13. Wanda White says:

    I would love to buy a premade kit for origami fabric boxes. They really are interesting the way they fold together.

  14. Ashley K. says:

    I’d love a kit to corset making to be honest. I am enamoured with Victorian style clothing but corsetry seems to be a thing only for the terribly talented. A kit with a basic, cute, fashionable corset would be amazing.

  15. Amy W says:

    A quilt kit with all the pieces cut out! I have always wanted to make a quilt, but I hate cutting out a dress pattern, let alone sitting down to cut out hundreds of quilt pieces!

  16. Debbie Rogowski says:

    a seasonal, like christmas or halloween queen size quilt, pattern and material. Is this my wish list :) I haven’t done an applique yet so that would be real nice

  17. MARY STOTT says:

    a tote for a 10″ tablet. well padded and places to put supplies.

  18. Mic says:

    a beginners sewing/quilting kit…would love to share my hobby with friends and young neices interested in sewing but don’t know where to begin…could include scissors, thimble, ruler, thread, etc., also assorted coordinating fabrics to make a small wall hanging or bag

  19. Mel says:

    Ah, a kit with step by step instructions for the cutest hand bag complete with tons of pockets AND cute ballet flats to match. The perfect weekend wear!

  20. A weekender bag in a colorful fun print.

  21. EMILY says:

    It would have to be something practical, useful and that could be given to a beginner as a gift if I wanted to get them interested in sewing. Something like a bag, pillowcase, purse, table napkins.

  22. kelli says:

    I would like a DIY kit a messenger bag with pre-quilted fabric and all of the hardware.

  23. Lilly White says:

    Felt anything because picking out, working with, and understanding what to do with it scares me! Kits are a great way to try something with less risk!

  24. Marilyn Snow says:

    An intricately cut ultrasuede purse that has another color showing thru the cut out portion. The kit would also include the hardware and a nice lining with several pockets.

  25. Kim Nugent says:

    I’d love to do either a purse/bag or a quilt in a DIY kit. I haven’t done either and a kit would make it easy!

  26. Kim Greaves says:

    I would love to have a canvas tote bag/purse with all the zippers, clasps, and hardware included, with the instructions. That would be so wonderful. Thank you.

  27. Dawn Schreiner says:

    I would love a sewing kit that included all the materials and supplies to make a stuffed animal. I would buy one to make with my granddaughter.

  28. Amber Abram says:

    Hmm… a reversible bucket hat kit or a small handbag kit- with fabric, lining, stablizer, hardware, etc.

  29. Nancy Kurrasch says:

    I would like a kit to make placemats and napkins.

    A fun girl quilt with flowers

  32. Erika says:

    i would like DIY pillows in odd shapes with the pillow insert included.

  33. Evelyn says:

    I would like a quilt kit with a rainbow of gorgeous batik fabrics.

  34. Tina says:

    I would LOVE a DIY bra or pantie kit.

  35. SewLindaAnn says:

    In kits, I would be most interested in small projects to keep the cost doable. Like fabric birds, felted pouches, a sampler applique like the alphabet or something but done in a fun, modern way, and lastly small crochet or knit project like a 6″ tree, a few flowers packed with a unusual more expensive yarn that we can’t usually buy as a whole skein. That book is totally on my Amazon wish list.

  36. Natalya Hoak says:

    I’d buy a DIY kit for practically any purse or handbag if it included all the hardware. Hate when I have to keep going back to a craft store because I didn’t get one thing or another.

  37. Karen says:

    I would love DIY kit for cute jeans that fit

  38. Anna Singleton says:

    Christmas-themed shower curtain, window curtain and other decorative accessories for a newly updated guest bathroom.

  40. Cheryl Tripp says:

    A beautiful scenic quilting blanket with intricate cuts and beautiful fabrics……heavy sigh…..

  41. Jamie Fukofuka says:

    I’ve been wanting to make a thread organizer! Using a peg board and dowels and then fancy it up with fabric etc!

  43. a wedding room qiult for a queen size bed. Either for myself or as a present.

  44. Vickie Manke says:

    Baby quilt or apron for kids.

  45. Helena says:

    A lovely collar :)

  46. Melinda Thompson says:

    A matching set of purse and hat.

    A small wallhanging for Christmas, or a very difficult to cut out (with many small pieces) pillow would be something I would buy as a kit.

  48. Mama Lusco says:

    A beautiful shoulder bag including the hardware.
