The Repair Kit
I like to carry some needles and safety pins with me at all times just in case I need to make a quick gear or clothing repair but I've always lacked a decent solution to the problem of toting those things around. I have just stuck a few needles and safety pins into a piece of cloth and rolled it up and tossed it into a pocket on my bag.
This morning, I'm prepping the diaper bag for a trip to the Milwaukee Zoo tonight and it occurs to me that there MUST be a better solution. I hate reaching into the bag only to find a safety pin has come undone and now my finger is bleeding from sticking myself.
Enter the Going Gear capsule I received with my last shipment. There it sat on the countertop right next to the bag after a quick afternoon photo shoot as if put there by fate. It's the right length, has enough inside diameter to accommodate a couple of safety pins and three or four needles. The split ring on the top can be used to attach a small hank of paracord which will provide me with plenty of thread.
"Hmmm...," I think to myself, "maybe this would work for my little sewing kit. Let's give it a try."
And that, my friends, is how I got to this post today. I now have a solution to a long time problem that was always at the back of my mind (unless I'd just stuck myself again) and it presented itself in a very timely fashion.
So, we're going to give it a run.
