Easy Sewing Projects for Kids

There are really a lot of different easy sewing projects for kids or beginners, and depending on your own kids you might just start off with something super easy and they will learn quickly and move along nicely.  Other kids might really not enjoy it and find that it is no their thing. That’s ok. They have a good start and some day in the future it might hit them that they had tried it and are willing to try again.

There truly is no end of ideas when it comes to sewing patchwork projects with the kids.  They can sometimes surprise you in their knowledge and abilities.  What you might think is over their head, might be spot on.  We have found a few sewing books in the library –one was a Star Wars sewing book….Jarom loved it and made 3 projects on his own out of it– he was 10}

The idea is to just expose them to your own world.  Share with them why you spend so much time doing what you do- Sew

And Just in case you are looking for more projects– Amber from Crazy Little Projects is starting a series today!

    I teach Pre-Kindergarten, and I was wondering what kind of sewing projects you might suggest for 4-5 year old children? I think hand sewing would be a great fine-motor skill and we do lacing projects but I thought it would be neat if my students worked on a project in a center/workstation that they could give as gifts. Any suggestions you may have would be appreciated.

    This site was such a help for me. I’m 9 and I could easily make these on my own. I had lots of fun making the drawstring bag for my mum. Bye
