Sewing Projects for Kids

Posted on Feb 15, 2016

So? are you looking to teaching kids to sew? If yes, we have brought together some great little sewing projects for kids. Sewing projects that they SHOULD be able to do. The majority of these sewing projects, my kids have **actually** made themselves between the ages of 3yrs and 8yrs old. When they were little, I would work with them one on one on their sewing project, helping guide every stitch. And now they are a little older (6yrs and 8yrs), I can usually leave them to their sewing, whilst only helping when they get into an difficulties. These sewing projects for kids are also great if you are teaching boys to sew. I found that my son enjoyed them all too!

Please do keep checking back, as I add more sewing crafts for kids over time! Also remember that may of these ideas make great sewing projects for gifts too. Perfect for Granny?s Birthday or as a small Christmas present made by the kids!

10+ Sewing Project for Kids - lovely kids projects that will help teaching kids to sew!

Sewing Projects for Kids

Perfect Sewing Crafts for Kids that make lovely gifts too!

Sewing Projects for Kids - Back to School Craft

These little Felt heart ornaments also work really well as ?heart keyrings? and my kids had a set as zipper pulls, but have the heart THEY made to Granny for Christmas as an ornament for the tree. My daughter was 3.5yrs when she made her first one.

Child Made Button Star Ornaments - a great sewing project for kids

As you can tell, we love sewing with felt for kids? projects as it doesn?t fray and is easy to get the needle through. My daughter loved making these Felt button star ornaments and again, Granny got some as a present.

Sewing Projects for Kids - nature pouch for kids

This is one of Red Ted?s first sewing project made from a ?felted? jumper. This gives the fabric a felt like quality, that is easy to sew and doesn?t fray. Perfect for our Nature bag craft and a go at blanket stitch!

Sewing Projects for Kids - juggling chickens bean bags

I adore these Sewing Crafts for Kids ? juggling chooks as sewing projects for kids learning to sew ? I confess that my kids have NOT YET made these ? but they are dying to (and it is just a question of time as to why we haven?t). They look ?3d?? but actually only require the skills for ?2d? sewing. Hand sew these with kids or use these as a beginners sewing machine project!


Another cute felt project for teaching kids to sew ? this is an adrable Felt heart mobile for kids to sew ? or make the hearts as little ornaments/ book bag charms or key chains.

Easy Fabric Flowers - Sewing Projects for Beginners with kids

A great beginner?s sewing project is this Easy fabric flower. It requires ?straight line? sewing only and is perfect for hand sewing. These fabric flowers sewing project can be used as a brooch, hair piece, embellishment for a bag or can be turned into a rosette

Fabric Flower Craft How To

A more confident child could then have a go at this slightly more intermediate but still easy sewing project for kids: Fabric petal flower (intermediate child sewer). Technically it isn?t that much harder, but may require a little more finger strength as you need to push the needle through several layers of fabric.

easy lavender craft ideas

Another super simple sewing projects fr kids ? check out these lovely easy lavender bags. Using pinking sheers (get some here  ? US/ UK (affiliate links)) helps prevent the fabric from fraying!

Sewing Projects for Kids - DIY Felt Heart - such an adorable little craft - turn it into a brooch, keychain or pocket friend. Such a cute beginners sewing project (5)

Another lovely felt project is this Felt heart brooch. This was a guest post on Red Ted Art, but my kids thought it was adorable ? a clever material used for the eyes (hop over and find out more!)

Felt Bunny Craft

After the cute Felt Heart Brooch shared above, we felt inspired to get sewing? we wanted to do a slightly different design, so came up with some Felt Softies Bunnies!

Sewing Projects for Kids - Easy Rag Dolls

Another sewing project for kids, would be these cute cute Rag dolls ? a little better for very basic sewing machine sewing ? but can be hand sewn too! I love that these rag dolls combine art with the skill of sewing!

Coming soon: Felt Bunny Pet
