Dutch Military Sewing Kit

98 16 100 0

Sewing. It’s a great skill to acquire, and though many of us are probably unversed in the textile arts, learning to mend an article of clothing, take in a pair of slacks, stitch a hem or sew on a button never hurt anyone. In fact it probably did just the opposite.


Now, let’s talk about all those terrifying popped buttons, torn seams and the dreaded wardrobe malfunction. All of that embarrassment could have been kept to a minimum had you been carrying the Dutch military sewing kit. Keepshooting.com now offers a military sewing kit small enough to fit in a shirt pocket, pants pocket or a purse.

Remember, these sewing kits were originally produced for the Dutch military. If they’re good enough for military uniforms, chances are they’re probably good enough for the masses. At only $3.95, passing up this deal would be “sew” very foolish.

Details

The thought of a soldier sitting in the field and repairing a torn uniform or sewing a button back on a shirt may seem a bit absurd; but truth be told, that was a soldier’s reality. Of course today, a soldier will pay someone else to get the job done and go about his or her day. In an age where labor is often outsourced, trades and other skills are becoming less and less prominent. It is more important now than ever to learn a craft. What better way to begin learning how to sew than with our Dutch military sewing kit?

Originally produced and issued to Dutch soldiers, these sewing kits are military surplus items. The kit itself consists of a fold-over pouch with ties and is presented in a four-colored, disruptive pattern material (DPM), woodland camouflage pattern. When closed, the kit measures approximately 4.5-inches by 3-inches and can fit easily into a shirt pocket, pants pocket or any purse/bag. The inside of the kit has a pouch for housing all of its accessories, as well as a small flap to hold various pins and needles.

When you order, you will receive the kit as well as the following accessories:

- Light, olive drab thread

- Two needles

-Assorted spare buttons

Of course, these are just the materials that are included with the kit. There is always room for more.

Whether you are currently in the military and want to keep your uniform looking sharp or you are someone looking for a new hobby, the Dutch military sewing kit makes a great gift for yourself or a loved one.

It is a great choice for:

- Military personnel

- Hobbyists

- College students

- Tailors/seamstresses

- Survival kits

- Travel kits

    Mine only came with two needles and the thread plus one button, however it's still a good buy the case is durable and small but is able to fit plenty more accessories if need be so I'm not complaining about a 50 cent thimble and whatnot. I can add the extra stuff on my own.

    Ordered with the Black Friday sale, so I haven't taken it out in the field yet, but it is a great little kit, I wished I had ordered more than one now, I am going to order more, they have everything you need to repair your gear in the field with room to add what you want. Pick these up and keep a few around!

  6. Perfect to fix your surplus Dutch uniform items review by Jeff on 11/4/2013

    This kit arrived in mint never issued condition with all the contents as pictured. It is a small kit, but has everything I need to repair Dutch surplus items I have previously purchased. It was well packaged in a hermetically sealed plastic envelope. Having purchased US Army sewing kits from the Army's Uniform sales stores in the past I found this Dutch kit to be reasonably priced and the contents perfect for fixing small tears and replacing lost buttons. Where else can you get a replacement Dutch uniform button. I just wish more buttons were included.

    This was a fantastic buy. I do a lot of sewing and found this to be a very capable kit as is. I have added some of my own supplies to it and carry it in my get home bag. A very overlooked item by a lot of people.

    I really like this little kit. It came with an assortment of plastic needles, two types of thread, buttons, and a thimble. There was also a standard metal needle as well. The darker thread is quite thick and a serious pain to get threaded. I finally managed the deed with copious amounts of patience, a lighter, and spit. But this is a minor quibble. For a measly four dollars, this is well worth picking up.

    My kit came with definitely more than was pictured on the sample photo of its contents. Yeah, it is just a sewing kit, but it has everything you could possibly need (except maybe a Dutch seamstress)!

    I have one in every backpack! I took the advice from b and put a SwissCard in each. I've used the kit to fix a ripped tent and replace a button already!! It's always better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it!
    You can't beat the price!!

    It has everything you need most of the time in a compact and secure little bundle. The plastic needles are pretty neat, and there are metal ones too. There is room in the pouch for more stuff if you feel the need; a SwissCard or small knife would be a good addition. For $4 might as well toss one into every bag.

    I am not going to sew a pair of curtains with these set, there are people who could but I am not one of them. However it has the items I need 99% of the time in a sewing kit, needles and tread. Some of the needles in the one I have are rather thick for going through heavy canvas. The kit was meant to repair military type clothing and equipment, which makes if perfect for most of my hunting and fishing gear. The thread seems to be of high quality also. I have mended a heavy canvas duck coat with mine in the past.

    This is the perfect size for sewing a tear or a hole in your clothing. Great for temporarily fixing a rip in the back of your jeans.
