I learned how to sew at a young age. My grandma had an old pedal-powered sewing machine and would let us riad her fabric bin every time we visited. My sister and I sift through her bin of colorful scraps and design and create clothes for our Barbie dolls.

I think that sewing is a great hobby for kids and teens. For me, it was a welcome respite from “life” while I was a teen. Even now as an adult, I turn to it frequently when everything just gets to be “too much”.
Many of you may find yourself with kids and teens that need THINGS TO DO! I’ve spent the last few days combing through the archives to find projects that I think would be both fun and practical for kids to sew!
