Pre-beginner sewing lessons are projects and activities that will
help children 6-8 years old and up ( the age is just a beginning
guideline) learn some basic skills, such as hand sewing.
These kids sewing projects will start by using a needle and thread
and learning how to tie a knot in the thread. Learning to sew by
hand requires a lot of practice. This will also help them prepare
for doing sewing projects on the sewing machine.
You can do these lessons as often as you'd like. You can do one
lesson a week in the order listed or once a day. It is really up
to the interest of each child. These are the first steps to
learning how to sew by hand. Don't expect a lot from your
beginning sewer in the pre-beginner sewing lessons, it is just
building basics and having fun, nothing more. Kids can start hand
sewing on scrap material. Let them sew whenever they want to
Thread the yarn through the holes holding the end so it doesn't slip out. Let kids practice making a design with the yarn. Their yarn might need re-threaded. That is okay, this will give them practice threading a needle.
Just keep in mind it may take a lot of practice when learning to thread a needle, be patient and provide encouragement.
