  • Kid Craft Ornament to Sew in No Time

    Kid Craft Ornament – Snow Globe A kid craft ornament is the perfect snowy day activity for kids that are home from school during winter break. This snow globe kid-craft ornament is a quick and easy project that includes felt and glitter, two of the best kid craft supplies! I recommend working on this project with your kiddo, teaching them sewing fundamentals along the way. A straight stitch is all that’s needed, with a little finesse required for sewing the curved edges of the snow globe ornament. If working with kids younger than 8 years old, have them pour the glitter and you do the sewing (and they watch). Remember,…

    Reindeer Stuffy to Embroider & Give

    Reindeer Stuffy – How to Embroider an Embroider Buddy A reindeer stuffy is a great gift idea for Santa to leave inside a stocking this year. The reindeer stuffy is an Embroider Buddy, meaning he is specifically meant for machine embroidery embellishment. The stuffing is enclosed in small “pillows” for easy removal, allowing you to access the tummy and place it flat on the hooped stabilizer. REINDEER HOOPING All Embroider Buddies are basically the same as far as how to remove the stuffing. Unzip the animal along the lower edge and remove the stuffing “pillows.” The reindeer stuffy has two removable “pillows” and one that stays put (in the the…
