Adorable Projects for Beginner Sewers

Created with the most basic stitches, these five easy projects are perfect for kids just learning how to sew.
kids wearing handmade t-shirt dresses Easiest Dress (or Shirt) Ever

These projects were road-tested at the backyard sewing camp I ran last summer for a bunch of eager participants ages 6 to 12 -- my own kids, Harry and Ava, included. I set out to design fast and simple crafts that would capture the kids' imagination. A wearable item, a soft toy with its own place to sleep, a game, and a cute key fob seemed to cover all the bases. The kids agreed, and our camp kept us in stitches for many happy hours.

First, the easiest t-shirt dress ever: A few lines of stitching turn a grown-up's tee into a cool and comfy dress or shirt. For extra style, add a stenciled monogram.
