I hand-stitched some owls for a baby shower recently, and the kids were really interested in what I was doing. Then they began asking me if they could help.
It sounded really intimidating to “teach” them to sew, so I freaked out a little inside. But then I realized how much of my own sewing has been trial-and-error.
So, I threaded some needles, gave them some felt hearts, and let them go to work!
I did show them how to do a blanket stitch, but they did most of the work on their own.
