Learning To Sew Kits For Children

Anytime I have a child in my life who wants to learn to sew, I am all for it. The story behind the why?

When I was a child, we had an old Singer treadle machine and a decrepit Brother machine. Neither of which I had any clue how to use. My Mom wasn’t exactly talented in the fiber crafts. But she could sew a button on fine, throw patches on, and darn a sock. She taught me how to hand sew, and later on I got lucky and was forced into taking Home Ec in Junior High (I just gave away my age in saying I took that…..). Turned out I was a natural with sewing. It came to me relatively easy. But the key was I learned hand first, then later on machines. So with kids, encouraging hand sewing is vital.

Learning To Sew Kits For Children? Yes! Sometimes a kit can be just the thing 🙂

Walker has really expressed a huge interest in learning to sew this year, and while I had taught him some basics using felt sheets, yarn and yarn needles, these kits are just so much easier (and fun). And they get to make 3 stuffed toys as well!

The proof that we finished it and didn’t cause me to rip my hair out 😉 Walker is 5.5, so he needed my help still, but an older child of 7 and up should be able to do nearly all by themselves.

My friend’s daughter just turned 9, and I saw this kit – Creativity for Kids Fleece Fashions Scarf, Gloves & Headband Making Kit – and knew it was a good choice. Heck, I would have had a lot of fun when I was a kid with this one. (Oh heck, I’d have fun now….)
