Kids can sew owl softies!

My Monday class girls chose this cute owl softie from the book Sewing for Children to make this past week and they turned out so, so cute! I didn't manage to get a photo of my students' finished projects, but I did get some of the owls my kids and I made, after the fact. 

Here's mine. Because who wouldn't want to sew along while teaching this class, right?? I made mine a feathered headband. Should I call him Woodstock? Is it even ok for a bird to wear feathers??

My girls almost always join in on sewing class, but my son tends to wait until after class to make the projects that appeal to him (just too many girls, I guess) and he cut his out and sewed it almost all on his own! And whenever one machine became unthreaded he would just switch to a different one, lol. Sewing is a good skill for boys to have too.

In the book this is a hand sewn project, but we did ours by machine.

We've made several things from this book over the years. It was one of the first kids' sewing books we got, long before I started teaching sewing. My kids were able to make many of the items without help when they were younger! I'd call this one worth buying.
