Sewing these type of paper characters from dot to dot is what my kids started their sewing career with:
At 5 my daughter thought the paper sewing was easy and wanted to do more. She flipped through one of my crafts books and wanted to do a teddy. I figured she’d be able to sew felt fabric and she did really well! I used safety pins to keep the parts on the places. She did most of the stitches but did get tired towards the end and asked me to finish it while she designed the clothes for the teddy. The designs are made so I think this post maybe continued at some point… but this was a fun start for sewing together!
My son isn’t quite there yet for sewing but seeing what his sister was doing wanted to have a ginger bread guy in similar style, so that is what I did for him while he put Christmas carols on in the middle of the hottest summer. All happy so why not? 😉
