The kids are home for the summer- time to carve out some creative time! As a child, I would spend day after day at my grandmother’s house in the summer, and she taught me how to sew and crochet. I am so grateful that she taught me those skills- it’s very possible that I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today if she and my mother had not taught me the importance (and fun!) of being creative with fabric. I remember walking into the fabric store and being in awe of the colors and prints and textures on the bolts… and playing with giant boxes of buttons while Mom and Grandmom shopped.
Today I’m sharing 25 Free Sewing Projects for Kids! They range from very simple to a little more complicated, some are for hand sewing and some require a sewing machine. It’s time to create some summer memories, nurture creativity, and teach some valuable life skills to the kids, grandkids, and neighbors in your life (and do you know how many adults today don’t know how to sew on a button or do simple mending??)
By the way- these projects are not just for kids! You may find some quick and easy projects here that you’d like to whip up yourself!
