Meet out littlest and newest kit! Every October at our real-life Stitch Club class we sew something fun for Halloween. This adorable ghost was inspired by some Halloween characters I designed for the kids a few years ago. This is low-key no-fuss sewing at it's finest.
Our little ghost makes a wonderful first sewing kit, with no fiddly embroidery: the face is included as a glittery iron-on decal! The mouth can be used any-way-up so let your child decide if they want to make their little ghost pal cute or spooky! You have the option to include a hanging loop, as in our sample.
All you need to add is a decent pair of scissors (and patience with your little ones) (we sell scissors for those in need!)
Each kit includes:
White wool-blend felt
A good-sized sewing needle for small hands (it's sharp though so supervision is required!)
A few pins
A length of DMC embroidery thread
Black glitter-finish face elements which are simple to iron o
A scrap of calico to protect the felt when applying the face (yes, we think of everything!)
A sewing guide, which includes the pattern
We consider this sewing kit to be suitable for children from the age of 7+ (and adults of course!). Please supervise children with pins and needles and be prepared to cut the template and felt if necessary. For younger kids this will be a team effort with an adult!
Finished size: approx 13 x 14 cms
