Yesterday I talked about my passion for fashion and how I love to up-cycle old clothes. It all started as a child when I would practise for hours on my fashion plates and I also started sewing by making little clothes for my Sindy dolls. I can't remember 'sew your own' kits being available back then, I just had to learn by watching my nan and getting on with it. I would have loved proper sewing kits like the ones 'My Studio Girl' put together.
The kits are really cute and the instructions are easy to follow. My Granddaughter is nine and I did need to guide her a little, although she could clearly understand the instructions. In the kit you get a soft doll, ready cut clothing, 2 x sewing needles and all the thread that you need. Even if you are not a sewer yourself you will be able to easily make these little dolls. They are so cute and I think a great way to introduce your child to sewing. My Granddaughter loved it and she tells me that her and her friends would love to receive these kits as gifts. I think they would make great stocking fillers or to put in your rainy day craft box, and fabulous if you have a child who is eager to learn how to sew. A fun introduction.
Does your little one like sewing or have they expressed an interest?
