Their Creative Space

It's school holidays here, and that means its all about the kids getting their craft on!


A friend's daughter carefully machine sews for the first time - her sewing was perfect.
The completed Owl Softies... using this tutorial here (mostly)

The younger girls made these beautiful softies using the pattern in one of my sewing books Sew Darn Cute


What crafting are your kids doing these holidays? Do you like to sew with them?

I don't know if I would be brave enough to let my kids sew!!! Doesn't help that I'm not the most confident sewer myself! Those softies are absolutely adorable

Well done kids. They look ten times better than my one crappy sock monkey I made...hence why my kids dont sew yet either!

These are so great and I love seeing the girls enjoy sewing. You've motivated me to try to get my kids interesting in making something. Might not be so easy with boys! Cx
