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.
Supplies you’ll need:
- Needle and thread
- Stick pins
- Thick felt
- Poly-Fil for stuffing
- Googly eyes
- Craft glue
- A print out of the patterns and instructions below
Sewing basics – video links to get started:
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 to 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 most of the cutting and sewing on his own.
