My 3 year old has suddenly taken an interest in sewing. I got her a little wooden sewing machine for her birthday. She has been enjoying it so much that now she’s asking for a “big machine like mommy’s.” I decided to get a list together of some sewing projects for kids that she would love and I wanted to share that list with you.

11 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make
I wanted to find projects that would not only work for younger kids like my 3 year old, but would also be great for older children that are looking to start their first sewing project. The first item fits the bill perfectly:
If your child has never sewn anything before, this is the perfect place to start. These are printable pages that teach your child how to sew in a straight line, turn corners, and navigate curves.
If you are too nervous to hand over your machine to your child, this is the perfect project. All the sewing is done by hand, and it will use up some of those scraps you haven’t known what to do with. Plus, they are adorable! I can see these being great gifts that kids could make themselves.
These letters are such a cute sewing project for kids that I am tempted to make them myself for my toddler! What little one wouldn’t love learning their letters and learning to sew at the same time?
My daughter is obsessed with change. It is a happy day when she finds a penny on the ground. You would think she won the lotto. These Felt Piggy Banks would be an easy project that she would love for all the loose change she finds.
This is the perfect sewing project for kids that love to cook! And this basic apron is perfect for even the most basic beginner kid seamstress.
How about a sewing project for kids that is also practical. This mesh sports bag is not only good for, well, sports, but I can see it also being perfect for legos or other small toys.
While this project might need a little assistance from adults because of the crimping, this is still an easy sewing project for kids to make. Plus it can double up as a gift that kids can make for others which in my book is always a plus.
If you have a little super hero in your life, this is the perfect project for them. And what super hero wouldn’t love a mask they made all by themselves?
This is another great tutorial made with kids in mind. And it looks like it would perfectly fit coloring books or books from the library.
I love sewing projects that double as toys. These bunny hand puppets are not only adorable, but super easy for kids to make.
Your child will be so proud when they sew this felt clutch! And the button details on the front are not only easy to sew, but super cute.
