My kids love to watch me sew. It’s fun to see how fast that needle can go. They are so intrigued by the fabric, thread, and the “thingy” I press with my foot! I love that they are interested. So to keep up their good spirits about sewing, I’ve let them help me with a few things here and there, even when they are little. But now that my son is 9 years old, we think he’s ready for a few projects on his own from start to finish.
I’ve come up with a few beginner projects that are perfect for young or new sewers. Each of these 3 projects are simple enough to understand and you end up with a fun item made by YOU!
Keep reading for the details on each project:
How to make a fabric bookmark: This is great for practicing lines on fabric. And it makes a great bookmark to hold your page on your favorite book.
How to make a t-shirt bag: Beware – these are addicting. They are super simple and very functional.
How to make a drawstring bag: These are fun to make and keep your trinkets or marbles in. You can make these for friends.
