Preschool Holiday Sewing

We had fun stitching up these cute holiday bags with preschoolers.  They were "sew" proud of them!

I precut the green burlap and added a lacing string and plastic needle so that the kids could get started right away.  

Most kids knew just what to do, but a few needed some one-on-one assistance from some helpers.  Love how my older sewing students are now teaching the younger ones!

After sewing up three sides, I helped by adding a ribbon handle.  We cut ours about a yard long so the kids could wear them messenger style.

Let the decorating begin!  They loved, loved, loved the Christmas foamie stickers and spent a long time personalizing their bags.

It's tough to decide, who has the cuter bag!

These bags would also be fun to make with older kids.  You could use holiday fabric and craft thread. 

Happy holiday sewing!
