4 year old sewing

Miss L has made two projects this month. This is what she has been up to…

So one day she was going through a pack of random charm squares (I had won a variety pack a while ago) she picked out four different prints and found a piece of craft felt. She gathered her supplies and then asked me if she could make a puppet.

We sat down together and I taught her how to do a running stitch to sew on her charm squares. Afterwards she sewed up the edges. Then we decided to hot glue the puppets hair and face on. (Mom did that) She was so proud of her sewing project.


Yes I still thread her needle and know the thread… She is only four…


The next day she asked me if she could sew a teddy bear. I happened to find some brown polar fleece that I had bought a long long time ago for something I am sure. She wanted to make a birthday present for her little buddy who was turning one. I helped by sewing on the face since we were using buttons I wanted them to be secure. I taught her how to do a whip stich around the edges. She struggled with this a little more. I needed to be close by… in the end she did it and stuffed it with a little help from Mom.


Apparently this teddy has been well loved in the past week or so.


I sure hope our adventures of sewing together continue. Who knows what she will ask to make next.

This is impressive that your 4-year old is sewing already. Wishing I could get my girls to be interested. Any tips for encouraging a sewing interest?

I can't wait until Lucy is coordinated/interested enough to sew! She has started to say "oh boy FABRIC!" when the squishy packages arrive, so that is a step in the right direction, right? :) I think Miss L has inherited some good talent from her momma. She's already got a good eye, and did such a great job on these!
