This week we’re sharing challenger highlights from the new bluefig U sewing kits, pre-cut felt projects to help kids to learn to sew! Our six sewists and their children tested out the kits and shared the process with us: LiEr of ikatbag, Alicia Brown of Felt With Love Designs, Kristy of Simply This Life, Cheri Paxton of Living DIY Style, Rae Ann Kelly and Vanessa Lynch of Punkin Patterns.

Here’s Kristy and Lily’s purse, and next up is LiEr from ikatbag with Emily. bluefig U’s kits are offered at three skill levels, so LiEr and Emily selected an advanced project for ages 8 and up.

Emily is eleven and sewed the bag almost completely independently. LiEr was happy with the quality of the materials in the kit and had some constructive feedback about the instructions. She writes, “We are both proud of how it turned out! Emily took her Lil’ Duffle bag to school with her to show her friends today.”

Find LiEr’s detailed review of the kit at ikatbag, and check back tomorrow for more from our challengers. You can also find photos via #bluefigUsewingkit!
