About Kids Sewing - Owl Toys

Owl toys are easy sewing projects for children aged 8-12. And they are fun to do. They are made from small amounts of fabric, felt and buttons, and offer lots of opportunities for to develop kids craft skills.

Who is this aimed at?
Children must already have done an introductory sewing class to learn how to use a sewing machine. (See my other sewing classes for children).

What will my child learn?
cutting fabrics using a pattern,
further sewing practice
working with felt
sewing on buttons
how to stuff soft toys
Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth.

Course arrangements
All fabrics and equipment are provided.

I am insured and hold a full PVG (Disclosure Scotland) certificate.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Kids Sewing - Owl Toys are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
