Easy Sewing Projects

My kids are getting hooked on sewing! I am so pleased. The key to teaching kids to sew, is to sew easy sewing projects for beginners with them, as well as sewing “little but often”. As mentioned, both my kids love sewing, but sewing can take “ages” and kids like to see results quickly. So having some great quick and easy sewing projects for kids is just perfect. Today, I am bringing together, yet another set of fabulous easy sewing projects – though the majority are targetted at children, I think many beginner adults will enjoy making these too!!!

I hope you enjoy them as much as we did. Happy Sewing!
