Sewing ideas for kids
Even if you are a beginner or have been sewing for a while, sewing for children is one of the most pleasant and rewarding activities! But if you are a parent or have kids living in the same household with you, even easy and quick projects like sewing for kids can be a daunting task.
Kids need constant attention and supervision and this pretty much takes up almost all of your time, am I right? Things get even more challenging during school breaks, there’s practically no free time at all! At least that’s how things are around here, mainly because the moment I became a mother I decided my little angle will always be my one and only priority! That’s why you won’t see here, on the site as many sewing projects as you would expect and I would also love to share with you. But Ellie is my world and everything else falls to second place.
But sometimes I really, really miss sewing and try and find ways to fit some sewing time in my busy schedule. And that’s why most of the projects here are easy peasy, simple and quick! Like all these sewing for kids projects below! These are super quick and simple to make, you can easily tackle them down this summer, possibly during nap time.
