Sewing with Your Kids

One Hour Craft has great tutorials on teaching your child to sew with a sewing machine. Here is the first lesson and the second lesson was just posted. And here is lesson 3 How to Sew a Bag.

I learned to sew at a young age and found it something I have relied on continuously. It’s a wonderful skill to teach at a young age, it promotes a great feeling of accomplishment, teaches a ton of math (I didn’t figure that out until I got to college and studied patternmaking), and opens the door to a whole new set of creative skills. There are lots of resources for helping your kids learn to sew, there are even classes you can take together so you can learn side by side. Not only are the skills learned invaluable, the memories are priceless.

The workshops planned for Sewing 1-2-3 don’t use a sewing machine, we will be creating all sorts of different stitches with hand needle and thread. We’ll measure and make patterns. We’ll cut fabric and sew marvelous creations. We’ll keep track of it here.
