Teach Your Children How to Sew with Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Your Kids Will Love to Make

by June Fuentes on September 12, 2016 in Activities, Creativity, Sewing


When my kids were little I taught them at a young age to learn to sew. They all started out simple learning how to darn a sock. As they improved they moved onto bigger things and it was so exciting to teach them about the world of sewing.

I had much more time to do it all back then when I only had a few children but I loved every minute of it. For me, sewing is like therapy. It forces you to slow down, to get into a rhythm and forget all that is going on around you.

We’ve sewn all kinds of things in our home–from Christmas decorations to regency gowns to everyday skirts. It has been a fun journey

A helpful book for you to teach your children to get started sewing is Sewing School:



Here is a little bit about it:

Kids can sew too! This inspiring guide includes 21 fun sewing projects for children ages 5 and up. With easy-to-follow illustrated instructions and cut-out patterns, young crafters will quickly be sewing up colorful pillows, potholders, dolls, blankets, and more. These kid-tested projects require only minimal supervision and most can be made using simple hand stitches, so no sewing machine is required. With plenty of encouragement and helpful tips, Sewing School helps little sewers develop their skills while sparking a passion that will last a lifetime. 


They have simple projects like this Too-Hot Holder:




They also have fun projects:






And gradually move up to skirts (you can make it any length):

We hope you have a blessed and FUN time teaching your kids to sew!

I own this book and I can attest to the fact that it is a great book for children. I used it when I taught a children’s hand sewing class. However, it you want to teach children about machine sewing, I would suggest the Sewing School 2: http://astore.amazon.com/thloap-20/detail/1612120490

My husband got me a sewing machine for Christmas and my daughter is always interested in it when I use it. This will be a great opportunity for her to see and learn how it all works. What a great opportunity for us to share some mother-daughter time together
