I was inspired when I read Linnea's post about her son's first sewing project and wanted to see if Wren might be interested in giving it a try.
I thought I should start with something where the stitches were visible and it wouldn't be too hard to poke though, plastic canvas fit the bill.
Both of the kids had fun 'sewing' and Wren was eager for more!
"I want to stuff something!" Wren declared. So we set about making a little stuffed guy that he could give to a friend for his birthday. He really enjoyed drawing the circles and cutting them out. And he was very ambitious when he started sewing the circles together. But after just a few stitches, he was ready for something new.
"Well, you could finish it" he said, as I reminded him we needed to sew it together before we could start putting the eyes and mouth on. I encouraged him to do a few more stitches and finished the rest. Stuffing and decorating were right up his alley though and I think his little guy turned out pretty cute.
Violet went right to work trimming pompoms.
