Kids Sewing for Spring
My sidekick loves to sew, but we’re in the middle of selling our house and moving and I don’t always have the time right now to sit beside him while he uses a needle. So I came up with a solution that satisfied us both; a simple kids sewing project using foam and ribbon!
Kids Sewing with Foam & Ribbon
First, I printed a flower template (I used this one but a quick Google search will turn up tons of them for you to choose from) and cut it out of craft foam. Then, I got out my hole punch and punched holes all the way around the edges. I also made a circle for the middle of the flower and punched holes around that, too.
Then I got some gift wrap ribbon out of my stash and let him “sew” while I packed some more boxes.

I love that this kids sewing project can be personalized to any child’s interest. Priscilla would love this flower, but Sawyer would get a kick out of sewing wheels on a train or truck. Thanks for the inspiration, Erin!
Have you ever done any kids sewing projects with your little ones?
