How does a non-sewing Mama like me teach my curious girls how to sew and encourage them to tackle a project all their own? I had a little help from the ALEX My First Sewing Kit. This kit is packed with everything you need to tackle some fun first sewing projects including pre-cut felt, stuffing, fabric, needles, scissors, measuring tape, straight pins, buttons, rick rack, a thimble, a pin cushion and more.
The Lil Divas can't wait to try their hand at something else and with the help of our ALEX My First Sewing Kit this non-sewing Mama actually feels like it's something I can help them do. While they are building all those essential skills, I'm building a few of my own. So while I may not be ready to sew our own clothes I can certainly feel proud of the new stuffed animals (made by our own hands) in our house. Who knows - maybe I'm helping nurture a future clothing designer or at least two sewing proficient Lil Divas.
Have you introduced your children to sewing? What types of sewing projects have you tackled? I'd love some ideas for some simple, kid friendly sewing projects we can try together.
