Embroidery Stitches for Kids

AJ spent an hour or so on Tuesday afternoon making a merit badge based on the Etsy DIY merit badge tutorial I posted. I looked up some embroidery resources for her so I thought I would share them with you.

Embroidering with Children – Mayamade : Good tips for teaching little kids to embroider on burlap (photo credit for the above photograph is from Mayamade).

There are lots of great posts over on Sewing School ranging from getting started to embroidering with a group to ideas for projects. We love the Sewing School: 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make book around here and while there isn’t a lot about embroidery included in the book, there is on the blog and it’s thorough and easy to follow.
