Sewing School. Because that way, "everyone can make what they want." What a nice choice.
We prepared the tables with squares of muslin taped down for easy coloring and caddies filled with all the necessary supplies. Once they had their stuffie design the way they wanted it, a teacher helped to find a backing fabric and cut it out. We had pre-threaded needles so the kids could pick out their thread color and start sewing.

A few tips for hosting a sewing birthday party (in case you are interested):
- Keep the project simple and doable for the age level.
- Have all the materials ready to go - pre-cut fabric, pre-thread needles, have supplies around the room and ready to go.
- It doesn't have to last forever - we find that 1 1/2 hours is perfect for a simple project and birthday festivities.
- A sewing-themed party favor is fun - this could be a little sewing kit or chocolates.
