  1. Lol!! Not too long ago I made my son a sewing kit since his ex took off with the one I had previously made them.  I was in a hurry so I made him one out of a jar and made the pin cushion on the lid.  I had the same things as you did but I had an extra seam ripper which is useful to undo thread when a button pops off and safer than scissors which knowing my son would probably make a hole in the fabric.  The jar sits on a counter in his kitchen where he can easily get to and not hidden in some basket where he can't find.  Men! 
    Thanks for the tip in about the sand – I didn't know about that – I had mine filled with something similar to an SOS pad…the name escapes me – my mom who was a seamstress used to use it back in the 'old' days.

  2. Seam ripper for sure. And extra needle threaders are great. Also add a small, lidded plastic box for the buttons, and maybe another for extra pins or needles.
