Beginner Sewing Projects for Kids

Looking for beginner sewing projects for kids? I decided to pull together a few of our favorite and most adorable felt stitching projects. These are all perfect little sewing projects that you can do in an hour or so but I specifically selected them because they are easy enough for a kid to take on as a first sewing project.


How cute are these  DIY Felt Cookies? And BABY CLARE (who is now in 7th grade, FYI)

This Porcupine Pin Cushion Project is one of my all-time favorites. My mood when I wrote the intro is total new-mom brain. Pure comedy. But the project is still awesome.

Do you have a link the the needles you use for the beginner sewing projects? Thx


Hi Holly! Not specifically but any embroidery needle should work. You want a sharp point and a eye large enough for several strands of embroidery floss. Have fun! : )
