This was the kids big Christmas present this year, a sewing kit! I had a lot of fun making this kit, but man did my hand hurt after all the cutting and hole punching! (Plus, I made 3 kits!) It includes: an embroidery hoop, shelf liner, burlap, scissors, a homemade needle threader, yarn, thread, instructions, pony beads, large buttons, lacing cards, cardboard sewing cards, plastic canvas in varying sizes (magnets, picture frame, bookmark), a no sew fleece pillow kit, a hanging heart kit, a small stuffed dog kit, a chicken sewing project, stuffing, and a needle book! Wow, that's a lot of stuff when you type it all out! I found lots of inspiration online, at these sites: Fifth Wizardry, Maya*Made, Little Family Fun, Kids Sewing Projects.
I can't find the chicken printout link for you today, I'll try to find it later, but it was a cute activity!
Here's a picture of Caleb working on his stitch card. I got the idea from The Studio. I was surprised that they did such a good job!
I blogged about the felt needle book.
I used my Cricket to cut out their names and then adhered them with spray adhesive. They turned out cute!
And that's it. Have a merry Christmas!
