Sewing craft kits make a great gift idea for sewists. A little package with the fabric and pattern for a project takes out all the stress and is a gift they're sure to love.

Now, craft kits may bring to mind two pieces of cut out felt, some yarn and a plastic needle, but there are sewing kits designed for adults too. With Mother's Day is right around the corner, here are some adorable sewing craft kits:
