These three beginner sewing projects for kids not only teach them how to sew but will keep them busy doing something fun.
My 9-year-old son started weaving in art class so I thought he’d like to try sewing at home. Our kids are out of school and have plenty of time on their hands so I thought this would be the perfect time to explore something new. Plus everyone can use basic sewing and mending skills. Below are the supplies and templates to get started.
- Needle and thread
- Stick pins
- Thick felt
- Poly-Fil for stuffing
- Googly eyes
- Craft glue
- A printout of the patterns and instructions below

My mom taught me how to sew at a very young age. She taught me how to thread a needle, make a knot at the end and how tie a knot when I was done sewing so all of my hard work wouldn’t come unraveled.
If your kids are trying sewing for the first time you may want to help them get started but trust me they will pick it up fast! I tried to make the patterns for these cute sea creatures very simple so that my 9-year-old would be able to do most of the cutting and sewing on his own.
