We have already done so many
CUTE Sewing projects with the kids so far...
Have a look!l
We had so much fun making Te-He Kitty! It's a cute project that gives the children the opportunity to use a sewing machine, hand sew, stuff, and decorate with fabrics pens / crayons!
For many of the children, this was their introduction to sewing, both by hand and using a sewing machine. We're always blown away by the children's imagination and artistry, as well as their enthusiasm. Have a look for yourself:
The Jewellery project is an opportunity for the children to begin / develop their hand-sewing skills!
They each designed and constructed these GAWJ little creatures out of acrylic felt, which they could attach either a brooch clip or a cord to, to then become a lovely jewellery piece!
Have a look at just how luvly their creations are:
The children are each given a match-box, and a small piece of paper to fold into it. The idea is for them to construct a small creature, who will live inside the box! They will decorate the box, and on the paper they can either write / draw about the story of the creature... their name, their favourite snacks, the inside of their home!
Have a look at how creative these kids are:
What better way to drift into sleepy times than with a handmade Sleepy-Eye Mask?!
The children were given pieces of acrylic felt, which they chose the colour of, then hand-sewed their creations! They also sewed or glued details onto their designs, to make iconic pieces of sleep-wear...
Have a look at these fab creations:
Another fabulous acryclic-felt creation!!! Here the children were given the brief to design, cut, pin and hand-sew their own purses! Some did animal shapes, some did faces... some even did doughnuts!! OK!!
