Burlap Sewing

Burlap Sewing

by Abigail
(Lawrenceville, GA, USA)

On a piece of burlap, draw a simple picture (balloon, shapes, or whatever your child is interested in). With a blunt plastic needle have kids practice threading a needle with colorful yarn. They can then stitch the outline of the shape using the yarn and needle.

As children develop fine motor coordination, the drawing can become more complex. You can also use this to teach more difficult stitching techniques to older sewers.

If you use a washable marker, you can take the yarn out, wash the burlap and start all over!
