Today’s Guest Curator: Anna from Hoot’n Haller

She loves owls, sews up a storm and she’s graduate student at the University of Maryland (where she is also a “house mom” for a great group of men). Visit Hoot’n Haller for more from Anna!

    So happy to see these ideas! Been looking for super easy, but still nice, projects for my 5 year old, very beginner, sewist. Thanks!

  201. Molly in OR says:

    My daughter wants to make the stamps, the pillowcases, the necklaces, and the modpodge bowls. Then she wants to bake the cookies and drink the hot chocolate.

  202. Jenn in GA says:

    Love the little hostess gift basket and the rubber stamps! Thanks!

  203. Elizabeth in Ga says:

    Love those mod podge bowls!

  204. Stephanie in TN says:

    I like all of these projects!

  205. Karen in GA says:

    Nice! I’ll have to try some of these with my daughter.

  206. Julia in NJ says:

    My daughter is 6 and Juuuuust starting to get comfortable with the machine. I think the coasters will be a good start.

    ps, can’t remember where I read it, but the best tip I ever got for sewing with kids was to remember that they just watch the needle, not where the fabric is going. makes a lot of sense!

  207. Trina in MA says:

    What great ideas!

  208. Connie J in CO says:

    YUMMMMMMM Salted Carmel Hot Chocolate

  209. Wendy in OH says:

    I’ll have to save this list for when I start teaching my nieces how to sew.
