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:

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.

I have a very easy technique for those basics and plan to post a video soon but for now here are some good links from on How to Thread a Needle and Finish a Stitch.

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.
