The other day I shared with you my Christmas tree softie, which I made myself but would be great for kids to make, or even for a group of kids to do together as they learn embroidery stitches.
Sew a Softie Ideas
The kid’s Christmas baubles from Oh Creative Day are another great project for kids learning how to sew — she actually made these with a class!
These ornament softies from Simply Sewing are sewn on a machine, but might be a good project for a new machine sewist (or they could be stitched by hand).
Nittens and Patches has a great tutorial for doing photo transfer onto fabric to make ornaments. They turned out really well!
The hand-sewn pear from the Craft Train is ADORABLE, and I think all caps are warranted. A pear in a Christmas tree, anyone? And how about the fantastic Christmas pudding from Lucykate Crafts? Come on.
Grace’s Favours’ little robins are lovely, and I can’t gent enough of those little glittered pipe cleaner legs.
The little gingerbread man from To Be a Kid Again is a great first sewing project with supervision, or kids with some stitching experience can do it on their own. Another great gingerbread man softie can be found at the Blue Barn, and these are super simple because they use a cookie cutter for the shape.
The felt cat from Mama Smiles is another easy project for little ones to try.
And I definitely want to make a Christmas gnome like the one from Make Film Play.
And the penguins at Coloured Buttons? The cutest. In a post that is wearing out the word cute, but just try and tell me I’m wrong.
Little Stitch Studio made Christmas candy cones; so easy and sweet!
Softies aren’t just for Christmas, of course. I love these Hanukkah softies from Handmade by Amalia, which she even made a board game to go with.
Have you ever sewn softies with or for your kids?
