It’s that time of year again! The kids are home, running riot and getting bored. You want them to do something constructive but they want to do something fun. This simple hand sewing project for kids is perfect for keeping you all happy… and is also an excellent way to start making unique gifts for family and friends.
This sewing project uses felt as a fabric. Unlike other fabrics, felt is not woven together but is created using fibers such as wool or polyester. The fibers are then mixed with glue, steamed and pressed. Felt does not fray when it is cut so can be shaped without the need to hem. Felt used in sewing projects is also quite soft so it is easy to pass a blunt needle through it. Smaller pieces of felt can be glued together although sewing is preferable. You can buy felt in numerous different colors, to suit your little one’s creativity. All these properties make it an ideal fabric for a child to use.
The hand sewing project for kids video guides you through the whole process, from cutting your fabric, designing your face and sewing the pieces together. All you need is some felt, a large blunt needle that your child can hold and some thread… and anything else that you can use for decoration.
This hand sewing project for kids teaches a child several skills whilst they are having fun, such as how to follow instructions, and improves their dexterity skills by threading and using the needle. They will also be stretching their imaginations as they come up with fun, scary and… interesting… designs. While for mom there’s nothing more satisfying than to see the pride on a child’s face when it has completed it’s craft-work.
Just don’t be surprised if they develop cold-like symptoms more often, as they look for a reason to reach into the mouth of their creations!
