Kids Sewing Projects
A valued reader and
grandmother of 2 lovely granddaughters loves to teach her
grandchildren lots of various crafts. Together they have
done some great kids sewing projects that they like to share
with other readers.
Both granddaughters got ribbons for their
work at the ‘Grandma and Me Section’ at the Country Fair in
Tayte, the 3 year old, made a dolly
blanket entry for the Country Fair. She was judged in the
age category 10 and under and received a red
Tegan, the 7 year old, again was judged in
the same age category and received the blue
ribbon for her fleece blanket. She made her fleece
blanket in the school colors. Something light enough to tuck
in the backpack for the ride home on the bus on cold winter
Here is how grandma Joyce, Tegan and Tayte

sized fiskars is busy. She not only cuts material with the
fiskars, but dough for cookies as well. When kids are too
young to use a knife, those scissors come in
Again draw the desired design on card stock, so
that the children have an idea what finished
project will look like.
