• Sewing machine
  • Thick fabric for a base - we used denim
  • Fabric scraps
  • Coloured cotton thread


I set the sewing machine up on our craft table with a small stool so my children could reach the foot pedal on the floor. We used a thick piece of fabric to sew onto to make it easier to maneuver through the machine. I gave them a quick demonstration and left them to it. There were a few jams but they soon figured it out! They even worked out a system with one doing the foot pedal and the other guiding the fabric.
