Tom Cruise gifts sewing machine to Katie Holmes

London: Hollywood actress Katie Holmes has got a sewing machine from her husband Tom Cruise for her birthday -- because her favourite hobby is sewing.

"My mum grew up making curtains and pillows, and it made our home very warm, so I like to do things like that with my daughter. My husband got me a sewing machine for my birthday," quoted her as saying.

Holmes, who married the "Mission: Impossible" star in 2006, recently released the Holmes & Yang clothing line with her stylist Jeanne Yang for working mothers.

"Sometimes when life gets really busy, you don`t want to think about what you`re going to wear and you just want to have certain pieces that you know you can just depend on - what are those pieces? - that was kind of our challenge. Both of us are working mums, so we`re pretty busy, and, having a line, being mums and then having our careers is quite a lot," she added.
