Christmas Project Tray

Yesterday's post from my home business website is sure to get your creative juices flowing.

I wanted to show parents of beginner hand sewers the kinds of things we do in class, so I photographed the details of one of my project trays for them.

Of course parents are always welcome to visit the studio to see for themselves.

A project tray is really fun to put together. It should hold everything the kids need to take any given sewing project from start to completion, with the exception of stuffing. Keep stuffing in a different location so pins and needles don't get caught in it.

Just search around the house for interesting little dishes and containers to hold each item and place it on the tray for kids to explore, plan and make choices.

Make it as engaging as possible by using surprising, fun ways of presenting each element. The kids love to open little boxes and tins to see what is inside. The fact that they have carte blanch to use whatever they see gets their creative juices flowing!

Have you done anything to make sewing fun for your kids?

Happy stitching!
