When it comes to raising a family, one of the biggest changes a parent can expect is an increased cost of living. Kids are cute and wonderful, and raising them is a very rewarding experience, but it is also extremely costly. Fortunately for the sewists of the world, it’s easy to take some of the expense out of expanding your family and bringing children into the world.

There are plenty of projects you can sew for kids. From toys to clothes to school supplies and more, you can find a sewing pattern to fill just about any need you or your kids might have. By sewing the essentials (and non-essentials) for your children, you can provide for them without sacrificing quality to save money.

Bargain brands can be risky, and the cheap versions of some products quickly wear out and need to be replaced. Rather than deal with those headaches, you can sew high quality products for your kids at a fraction of the retail cost. Check out all the sewing projects below to find ideas, inspiration, and free tutorials so you can sew anything and everything your kids will need.

Teach Kids How to Sew

Whether sewing is your full time job or just a hobby, you love what you do and you’d love to see your kids share that passion. You can pass on your love for sewing to your kids by showing them how it’s done.

While it’s great to bond with kids over a mutual interest, teaching kids a skill can become very difficult and can quickly make sparks fly. In order to cut down on any arguing or frustration in the teaching process, you can use these free tutorials to help everything along. Because all of these sewing tutorials are accessible online, you and your kids can revisit them for a refresher whenever you’d like.

Comments

  1. I think my best sewing lesson would have been to cut accurately. Too many times have I tried to ‘fudge’ it and ended up with a less-than-stellar result.

    That Benina machine is BEAUTIFUL!

  2. Don’t be afraid to try new things!

  3. I love all these great projects! Lots of inspiration here!

  4. Everything my grandma taught my sisters and I about quilting. She is no longer sewing, but we are so happy to be able to use everything she taught us in the past.

  5. patti Marie says:

    Sewing has been a lifesaver, fun, rewarding, and a real money saver, too. Thank you to a loving Mother, now in heaven, and thank YOU for being a surrogate Mom to all of us.

  6. How to quilt. It’s become a passion of mine!

  7. To keep fingers away from the sewing machine needle.

  8. Tina Bennett says:

    How to choose fabric and to know how to tell the direction of the grain

  9. Debbie Cronin says:

    To always read the directions first!!

  10. As my home economics teacher said so many time, always do your construction pressing. Always press seams. :)

  11. Clean your sewing machine and replace the needle often!

  12. Keep trying no matter how many times you fail. Practice makes perfect.

  13. To follow the directions!

  14. Your seam ripper is your best friend.

  15. Ellen Gaynor says:

    Measure twice, cut once!

  16. Chiara Aldridge says:

    You will never regret unpicking something, but will regret leaving it.

  17. If you are using a pattern read through the directions first. Don’t hurry ,Always recheck everything from the laying out of the fabric to the laying out of the pattern pieces so you don’t make a costly mistake!

  18. Bonita Anderson says:

    Check the pattern against the person! You may need to make adjustments before cutting.

  19. Donna Stanley says:

    Trim seams!!!
