Small Projects for Small Hands

I haven’t been getting much sewing done myself this week butI did manage to get about 18 bean bags cut and stitched together (they’re for our church’s youth group to use for games).  About half of them are now filled with beans and waiting to be stitched closed but I ran out of beans so the rest will have to wait for a grocery shop.

Last Friday we started on our hand sewing lessons.  First the kidlets practiced some basic stitches on hole-punched cards with yarn.

Then they got started on their first real project: needle cases/booklets.  I was really surprised at how the kidlets tackled the learning curve.  Noah just jumped right in and got the hang of making the stitches really quickly.

Anna, however, was much slower to catch on but is also much more careful about her stitches.  I think they’ll be able to finish this project this afternoon when we sit down to do some more and hopefully we’ll have finished projects to show off soon!
