We have lots of posts, tutorials and projects lined up featuring sewing and crafts to do with kids. Look for book features, videos and more through the rest of summer! Michelle wrote to us about a project she’s working on with her eight year old daughter. With the help of Grandma, they are making pillowcases for a children’s home; each child will receive a special new pillowcase on their birthday. Michelle shows kids (and you!) how to make an easy pillowcase next, but first visit Hi Mamma and the family’s Petunia and Marigold shop. All proceeds from the shop are donated to kid causes.

My name is Michelle but go by Hi Mamma… One of my passions is creating handmade projects. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible and create things that are centered around the home and children. Whether my daughters and I create new handmade projects, “experiment” with a different type of art mediums, or embark on learning activities, we are always creating… Learning and sharing.
