Our ten-year-old likes arts and crafts.
A couple of Christmases ago, we bought her this Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make. (This is not a sponsored post, just a product we’re enjoying – but the link to Amazon is an affiliate link.)
She spent a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon making pillows and pincushions from old t-shirts, fabric, and felt. She doesn’t work in silence, though; she had Adventures in Odyssey playing on the Kindle the whole time! Her older sister joined in the fun for a little while, making the blue circle pillow from an old shirt.
A new project she tried was making the tote bag; adding a pocket on the front was her own idea.
My daughter suggested that I get her a gift card to Jo-Ann’s Fabric Store for Christmas so she can buy new supplies. I’m glad she’s developing this skill because it’s one I lack! I sew more than I ever thought I would, though it’s not the fun, creative stuff. It’s stitching in waistbands to tighten them or sewing a button back on a shirt. .
