I was sewing the other day and my three year old really wanted to join in. He’s still a bit young for sharp needles so with this in mind I decided to make him some little sewing cards – both my boys love them.
If you fancy having a go take a peek at the instructions below. Its soooo easy and I think it would make a neat little gift.
To make your sewing cards you will need:
1) Simply print pdf and cut out. I use pinking shears to cut out the ‘sun’ lacing card out but regular scissors are just fine!
2) Punch holes out (as pictured). I used a 1/8″ circle craft punch but a regular holepunch will work just fine.
3) Give your child a length of wool and a blunt needle and watch them go! If you don’t have a blunt needle to hand you could also use a pipe cleaner bent into the shape of a needle. If you have neither then you can simply wrap sellotape around the end of some wool.
4) I tied a button onto the end of the wool to act as a stopper.
If you have any problems leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to help.
WARNING: I would recommend you closely supervise your little one – even with a blunt needle.
