A valentine sewing activity for kids who are used to sewing for a while is this simple felt garland!
Putti has been doing a lot of pre-sewing and simple sewing as a toddler and preschooler. She has now moved to sewing with real aka sharp needle to sew felt. She has sewed a garland of sorts with the felt scraps we had in the past. But this time with valentines day just around the corner, I cut some hearts from felt pieces I had. Used whatever color I had at home. Putti marked dots on each heart to guide herself sew, love her idea! She did not sew exactly on the dots marked, but I am so happy she is making her own ideas up.
Then she started sewing the hearts one after another, she did follow a pattern with them. She did a running stitch using a needle size number 16. The process of putting the needle through one heart and pulling it out and to join another heart over and over takes some good concentration. I am really proud of my girl who just turned 5!!
After all the hearts are done, knot the end, wear it as a necklace and party!
