The Learn To Sew kits are packaged and ready to be given as gifts. I think of this as the higher-end alternative to the mass-produced kits kid’s craft sets at the chain stores. There’s a lot more love in the details to this, and I’d feel much better about giving it. As much as I’d love to give only gifts I’ve made this year, I’d rather add in gifts made by other thoughtful hands than go the mass-produced route. At least that’s what I’m aspiring to this year. (Odds are you’ll see some indication of my success around here.) The directions for the kit were well-written and would make it easy for any non-sewer to follow and help a new sewer along.
The My First Sewing Bag was personalized and contained a pair of child scissors, a felt needle book and a tape measure. As soon as I put the camera down she used the measuring tape to tell me that she’s 9 feet tall. We’ll work on that.
She’s made a whole lot of progress in terms of remembering how the needle can’t take the long way around.
Here she’s starting what she says will be a candy cane pillow for her Mimi. Sorry to spoil the surprise, Mom.

Ann is currently offering 10% off with code ELLESOPHIA10 at checkout. I think the project kits would make thoughtful small gifts or stocking stuffers, and the “My First Sewing Bag” is a lovely invitation for a growing girl to make sewing their own.
