Sewing Cards

My 3-year-old daughter loves to "sew", so we whipped up these quick lacing cards. That way, she can sew little dresses anytime she wants. She loves that they are personalized with her own artwork. They make a great busy bag item, too!

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Gather your materials and cut out your clip art shapes. We used a variety of dresses to play on the sewing theme.

  • Step 3

    For extra stability, we choose to laminate each piece. You could also cover them with clear contact paper.

  • Step 4

    Use your hole puncher to make holes going around the entire shape. Older kids can do this step themselves.
