The Sewing Kit is a Dress Tab Item that allows the player to restore 5 Days of Durability per use on certain items, up to their maximum, lengthening the duration that they can be used. It requires an Alchemy Engine to prototype, and costs 8 Silk, 2 Hound's Tooth, and 1 Log to craft. The Sewing Kit has 5 uses.

The Sewing Kit is used by selecting it in the inventory, then right-clicking on the item to be repaired. Items can be repaired while they are equipped, in the inventory, resting on the ground, or in a container. It should be noted that items do not lose durability while they are in an inventory or container, only when equipped.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Sewing Kit was added in the The End of the Beginning update.
  • Before the Underground update, clothing had to be removed to be repaired by the Sewing Kit.
  • Wilson's quote is actually a pun, as "darning" is a sewing technique.
  • In the Shipwrecked DLC, Sand Castles used to be repairable with Sewing Kits. This bug was removed in the Seas the Day update.
