My old textile box containing, 2 scissors, scissor sharpener, many color cotton and petroleum thread, thimble, many needles, many straight pins, 2 cloth measuring tape, a box of safety pins, seam ripper.

Edit: thanks for the comment about the glue. Never used it, so it's a good comment to motivate me to give it to 2nd hand store or something like that.

    Text for textile toolbox:
    I have so many things that need mending. And so many things to mend them with. But still no good place to keep them. UNTIL NOW!

    All the things. Note that my scissor sharpener is the trusty ole file hidden there somewhere. Also pig mug for good measure and better luck (will not be going in, but will be a part of most mends)
