This was my project for the "Kids Can Do" round of SYTYC. In past seasons I've noticed that for this theme projects were either something a kid could participate in making, or they were cute and a kid could later play with it--a combination of both was rare. I wanted to accomplish that combo! I'll have a tutorial up for it later this week, but in the mean time, I thought I'd share my entry post. And, don't forget to go vote for this round!
This felt “nesting” book is a nest in itself! It tells a sweet, simple story: The birds are building nests today. With twigs, grass, mud and string. The birds are building nests. They’re using everything!
This project is not only something fun for a kid to play with, but it’s also something a kid can do! My six year old helper learned to use a sewing machine by doing the edge stitches on the pages. The embroidery work could also be done by a child!
But the fun doesn’t stop there! The bird in the middle is also a finger puppet!
This sweet, simple little book is the perfect first sewing project and will then provide lots of fun in the future!
