Sewing with Kids: Looking for Input

Good morning, sewing friends! Today I'm looking for a little help from you.

I've been talking with a friend about doing some sewing projects with her 9-year old daughter. We're thinking some hand-sewing projects would be best. I've heard good things about the book Sewing School, but am also interested in hearing other ideas. There are so many wonderful resources out there that it can be hard to know where to start looking!

So, have you ever sewn with kids? What projects are a hit, and which ones are flops? Any particular projects that they really loved?

Thanks for the help! I'll keep you posted on what we decide to do.

Linking up with Needle & Thread Thursday... hoping some of those lovely folks have some ideas!


  1. What about a pillowcase? You could use a plain pillowcase and embellish the hem in some way.

  2. What a fabulous age to engage a little person to sew. Consider working with felt easy to use and there are so many projects you can do...purse, pencil case etc. Stopping by from My Quilt Infatuation Thanks for sharing. Marie (
