Kids Can Sew

This past summer my girls participated as sewing ambassadors in the International Sew a Softie event. The tea towel softies from my previous post were their contribution. Teaching kids to sew is such a great skill to learn and can be a lot of fun for them as they manage to complete projects by themselves. I thought it would be fun to share some of the other great simple sewing projects for kids I came across this summer through the sew a softie event.

I've rounded them up and listed them below just to make it super easy for you. No need to spend hours searching pinterest, just check out all these great projects below.

  • Loved everything about this idea from Mama Smiles, the creativity behind using a child's own drawings to the basic sewing as they create a 3d version of their sketch. Stuffed toys based on drawings 
  • This Sew a Star Softie by is the perfect project for little fingers and my kiddos love the book how to catch a star by Oliver Jeffers, this would be a great companion project. thanks for sharing Apple Green Cottage
