Doc has asked me every day since our first time sewing on my sewing machine if we can make something else together. Since he did such a great job on our first project, I figured I’d better get on the ball and come up with something else to make. So I put together another idea for sewing with kids – Make a Halloween garland!
Sewing with Kids – Make a Halloween Garland
- Sewing machine
- Neutral colored thread (I used an off-white color…it was already in my machine)
- Felt (white, black, yellow, orange, green)
- Pattern Pieces – You can print the template HERE.
Print the template and cut out the pattern pieces.
Place the pieces on the appropriate color felt and cut out the pieces.
Have your child sew on the stems of the pumpkins.
Then, stitch the pieces together end to end in whatever order you like. I spaced mine with a yellow square, but you could make your squares any color you want. The template also contains a circle if you want to try that to space your shapes instead.
We just made one giant seam connecting all the pieces together. But we did not sew through the center of the bats (I didn’t want a big white line through the center). Just make a small seam on the end of each wing to connect the bats to the rest of the garland.
Doc was very happy with the finished product. This project went together in about 15 minutes, which was the perfect length of time for a little one who is just learning how to sew. Like last time, I ran the foot pedal, and he guided the fabric through the machine. If you’re looking for a great, simple project for sewing with kids – Make a Halloween garland!
