Summer vacation is around the corner. And if you’ve still got kids at home – and you’re like me – you’re probably looking for things to keep them busy. And as a bonus: maybe you’re also looking for ways to teach them some new skills. Sewing is a fun project to tackle in the summer. I’ve put together a list of 10 simple sewing projects to teach a beginner how to sew.
This post is sponsored by Baby Lock Sewing Machines. I have been working with Baby Lock Sewing Machines as an ambassador for over 5 years now and continue to be impressed by every machine I’ve used!
I created a list of 12 perfect simple sewing projects for kids or any beginner to learn how to sew. I tried to come up with a wide variety of projects that would both teach a range of different skills, as well as provide a assortment of project ideas to pique someone’s interest.
Another variation on a skirt tutorial - this one has a few more seams, but also gives the option of adding more fabrics. An elastic waistband and simple hem technique make it quick and easy.
Hopefully that gives you a simple variety of ideas with out being too overwhelming. If you are planning to teach one of these projects, I would recommend making at least one prototype yourself just so that you have experience and confidence. Last thing we want is for new recruits (aka budding, beginning sewists) to feel frustrated.
