15 Easy Sewing Projects For Kids, Tweens and Teens

15 Easy Sewing Projects For Kids, Tweens and Teens By: NotSoIdleHands.com

My girlies are getting older and have started showing more interest in learning more “grown up” activities, like sewing. But, of course they need to start off with the simpler types of projects…..and since I’m a champ at sewing straight lines (and somewhat wiggly)….that’s exactly what I teach them.

I’ve been on the lookout for some cute things they can start off with and these are some that caught my eye!

*Things to Watch out for*

~Hilarity while kids are getting used to findingĀ the right pressure when using the foot pedal. Makes me laugh so hard when it scares them when they get it going to fast and then they’ll freak out and just stop completely….priceless!

~Kids having fun with you as they learn (and succeed at) something new….priceless as well!

Have fun!

  1. Thanks for sharing such adorable ideas! I like tic tac and valentines’ designs among all, would like to try them on pillow.

  2. I would like to see instructions on your little felt hearts but it leads you to a website that has a warning on it for a virus. Any other way I can see this?
