Christmas Baby Blocks Sewing Pattern

A new Swoodson Says pattern is releasing! Available only in the Christmas in July pattern bundle until this thursday (more details about the bundle here, it’s a good one!); this is the perfect pattern to sew by the dozens. The design lends itself well to using up fabric scraps and the appliques are unique while remaining easy to sew on. Babies and toddlers will love throwing, stacking, and squishing these soft blocks; they’d fit perfectly in a stocking!

Looking for a gift to make with kids that will actually be used? This finger painted bookmark tutorial is a simple sewing project for beginners, but is fun to paint, too!

My Mom was always tinkering, crafting, and making something by hand when I was growing up. I love honoring that memory by making her handmade gifts, and it is even more fun when I can involve my kids! It can be a challenge to come up with gift ideas kids can help with that will actually be used and enjoyed (macaroni noodle photo frame, anyone?) but I love the resist painting method. We made DIY finger painted bookmarks together, washing our hands in between colors with SoftSoap® Hand Wash Plus Lotion™, and they turned out great!

How To Make a Fabric Tray - let your kids join in and paint fabric to make a gift for Mother's Day! Fabric trinket trays are a great beginner sewing project that uses up fabric scraps. #ad #cbias

My kids are 4 and 2 and they love giving gifts almost as much as they love receiving them. Picking out cards is such a fun activity and we had a great time choosing Mother’s Day cards from the selection of Hallmark Signature cards at Walmart! I came up with a simple sewing project that they could also help with so I can pair the hand-painted fabric tray with the beautiful cards they chose. There are lots of ideas for what to sew for Mother’s Day but this is an easy one to get the kids involved. The trays are perfect for storing jewelry, loose change, little plant pots, or sewing trinkets!

How To Make A No Sew Fabric Bookmark

I love using up fabric scraps and can never have enough bookmarks, so this fast and easy craft shows you how to make a no sew fabric bookmark! It’s hard to find ideas to use up knit fabric scraps (I have a huge list of them in this post!) but this craft perfectly uses up those weird long strips you end up with after cutting out clothes. Most craft stick ideas are for kids, but I think these would be a perfect gift for an adult. They kept my place in the embroidery book I was looking at; I think I’ll make a few more and slide them into my purse for when I’m reading on the go.
