Kid Crafts – Backstitch

I had this BRILLIANT idea that if I got the 7 and 8 year old little plastic embroidery grids to practice on, they’d be busy crafting while I could sew. HAHAHAHAHA. I am dumb.

Little did I realize that just because they’re practicing a backstitch for a few hours, does NOT mean they won’t need floss cut every 5 minutes and their needle rethreaded.

They did great for their first time.

Next thing they are going to learn is how to thread those needles. My mom got Hazel this cute sewing basket. Actually, I think it was her church quilting group. Anywho…I need to put one together for Alex too. With needle threaders.
