Sewing Projects for Kids
Seersucker Baby Quilt
A spiraling seersucker pattern quilt makes a tactile treat for little hands and feet. Mix colors and stripes (we used seven types of seersucker), and vary the directions of the stripes.
These adorable hats are reversible and will keep the sun off of your little one's face.
There's no better way to cover a baby's precious toes than with a pair of soft, snug hand-sewn booties.
Stuffed Menswear Bunny
Suiting fabrics are an unconventional but charming choice for making toy bunnies. Bright cotton shirting adds a surprising pop of color inside the ears.
Felted Stuffed Animals
These petite stuffed animals -- a Fair Isle lamb, a cable-knit chicken, and an argyle pig -- are so cuddly and simple to make, you'll want a menagerie.
A baby's clothes acquire history so quickly: the blanket she came home from the hospital in, the overalls she wore while learning to crawl, the flannel pajamas she slept in. For those items too precious to give away there is a solution more creative and less cluttering than a box in the attic -- a baby memory quilt that is sure to become an heirloom.
On bus or train trips, during wedding ceremonies, or whenever silence is required, keep your child entertained with a homemade felt activity book.
This petite argyle pig is so cuddly, you'll want to produce a whole pen's worth.
