Soldiers were often sent off to war with “housewives” or small sewing kits made by their wives, mothers, or girlfriends. These were usually made from scraps of fabric or sometimes leather, and could be folded or rolled to pocket-size, and then fastened with ribbon, yarn, or a button. A typical housewife contained needles, pins, thread, scissors, extra buttons, and sometimes patches of extra fabric for mending holes in cloths.
