Welcome to Day 3 of the It’s All About The Kids Craft Blogging Event. Today, I want to share a sewing project with you that is kid friendly, as well as some free kid-friendly patterns from the Fat Quarter Shop who is also a sponsor for this blogging event and is giving away several gift certificates too!
The Fat Quarter Shop team has written an easy to follow “pocket N pies” pattern that you can download in PDF format. FQS has shared that this design would be appropriate for age 7 and up.
And they have also created a very helpful youtube video tutorial:
The Fat Quarter Shop has many free projects with video tutorials, and here are a few that kid friendly projects that would be great fun:
And definitely check out the fun Makin It Cute templates at the Fat Quarter Shop, from Me and My Sister Designs. You can make sweet 3D embellishments that you can use to decorate with, or use as an applique’ on bags, towels and more. The possibilities are endless and it makes for a great kid friendly and/or family craft night project.
In 2014 Kimberly and the Fat Quarter Shop team hosted a super fun quilt-along to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish. Their goal was to raise $10k and to help them reach their goal, their Wishes Quilt is now at auction. ONLINE bidding closes November 30th.
