This stitch kit is the perfect gift for a young child who is just beginning to learn how to sew. Children as young as two (with supervision) can hold the embroidery hoop in one hand and use the large, blunt tapestry needle to pull the colorful cotton yarn through the open-weave fabric squares. The skills learned with this kit can be used in embroidery or hand sewing. Give the gift of sewing today!
The kit includes: - one 5" embroidery hoop - two squares of burlap (assorted colors) - two squares of osnaburg (natural color) - one tapestry needle - one flexi threader - forty strands of pre-cut yarn (10 assorted colors) - one stitch booklet with diagrams and instructions for basic 10 stitches
Each kit comes packaged in a stitched brown paper package that can be wrapped, tied with a pretty bow, or given as is.
The stitch kit was created after I gave my two-year-old son an embroidery hoop with burlap in it. He was able to easily hold a tapestry needle in his fingers and put it through the open-weave fibers.
The pre-cut yarn is 18 inches long, which is a perfect length for children, whose arms are shorter than an adult's. Shorter yarn allows them to pull it through in one motion. It also means that scissors are not an essential component, though you will need them if you want to trim the yarn at the back after ending a strand. The size 13 tapestry needle is also perfect for kids. The eye is large enough that the yarn can be put through, even without the flexi-threader. And it is easy for unpracticed fingers to grip the wider shaft.
With this kit, your child will be able to create four pieces that can be displayed around the house or become part of another art project. In the end, it is the finished pieces and the newfound skills that your child can be proud of.
Be sure to share your child's creation using #stitchkitforkids so I can check it out.
Perfect starter kit for a young child. Both my 3 yr old son and 5 yr old daughter love their kits. Everything is sized perfectly for small hands with a variety of colors to choose from - thank you! Love this kit!
