As may know, I am a big fan of teaching kids (or anyone) basic crafting skills… and sewing is one such skill. I think everyone should be able to do the basics of sewing – from sewing on a button to simple sewing projects for kids. I have what is I hope a great article on Teaching Kids to Sew, if you are struggling to figure out when to start and how to start sewing with kids! Today however, is all about Kids Sewing Projects for Christmas!!
Yes, we have some adorable Christmas Sewing Projects for you to get stuck into. I have also included a set of more “generic” Christmas Sewing Projects for “big” kids, simply because they look so very lovely!! You could probably make these as “together” projects with your children.
All sewing patterns shared here today are FREE!
Kids Sewing Projects for Christmas
- Easy Penguin Ornaments (we made these as party bag sewing kits. So cute!)
- Felt Reindeer Ornament or Reindeer Brooch – this is a simply darling “together project”, get the grown ups to sew the details and the kids to assemble the reindeer into a brooch or ornament. Just so sweet!
- Felt Heart Ornaments – I adore the contrasting colour of these and they look wonderful as tree decorations, but also on bookbags.
- What is not to love about the combination of Felt Buttons and Stars? A great project to get kids sewing and learning those basic skills!
- Another Reindeer Ornament – this time you have a silhouette with a fabulous bright red nose! Wonderful.
