Encourage Life Skills with These Kids’ Sewing Kits

Learning to sew is a useful life skill to develop. Everyone should — at a minimum — know how to repair a rip or replace a button that pops off a shirt or jacket. While not everyone will grow up to be the next Vera Wang, being able to repair clothes can save you money in the long run. Learning how to sew begins with the basics, which is why these fun sewing kits for kids teach children the essential stitches and how to work with needles, thread and scissors.

We like that this kids’ sewing kit comes with everything you need to get started on making more than a dozen food items. This includes a 48-page instruction book, felt pieces in nine different colors, 32 yards of floss, embroidery needles and polyfill.

This kids’ sewing kit includes five projects that are ideal for kids as young as 7 years old. You’ll get everything you need to begin sewing and to start a sewing kit for after they finish the project.

This kids’ sewing kit comes with 28 felt pieces, stuffing, embroidery floss, fabric, measuring tape, scissors, a pin cushion, pins and a variety of trims for each project.

This kids’ sewing kit comes with five beginner sewing projects that are colorful and simple to complete. Plus, the foam pieces and thick cord are easier for younger kids to handle.

Along with the mannequin, this kids’ sewing kit comes with 50 pieces, including a sketchbook and markers, accents, pins, a measuring tape and thread to get kids started designing clothes.

Expert Commentary

I think basic sewing skills are a great life skill to have, and wish that I had been introduced to some sewing techniques when I was younger. My oldest child has recently shown an interest in learning more about sewing, so one of the great kits featured here may become our method for that. These options are sure to get any kid excited about the art of sewing and provide a good introduction to basic sewing skills.
