I know that many of you have been struggling with entertaining children since school was cancelled months ago. I thought that I would share with you some ideas, aside from the basic decorative bed pillow, that you can make together with your kids. A couple of them only require scraps, so you won't even have to buy fabric or go to a store. But, if you do need fabric, here are some places to order it online:
- Pillowcases are a great way to teach and learn some basics, like measuring, straight stitching and french seams.
- Scrappy Snakes will use up lots of leftover fabrics and are lots of fun to play with afterwards.
- This Cute Owl Purse also uses scraps and any little girl will love it. She can personalize it using any colors that she wants. Applique is a nice skill to learn.
- I personally use this backpack all of the time! If you have pre-teens or teens, this will be a great project!
