Our First-Ever Cuddle® Camp for Kids (3 Kid-Friendly Sewing Projects)

If you've been following our Sew Together Tuesday video series on Facebook, you know how popular Teresa's live videos have become over the past few months! With kids still at home for summer, we thought now would be the perfect time to put together a free LIVE mini "Cuddle® Camp" to get kids interested in sewing in a fun, safe and comfortable environment.

Here our National Educator will be tackling three absolutely darling sewing projects (one project each day) designed specifically for kids — an Enchanted Travel Pillow, and a Brekky Bag Quilt Cadets and Little Pincushion Studio, and a Mood Pillow by Quilt Cadets.

 

We've listed the schedule and suggested fabrics and notions for each day/project below, and don't forget to share what your kids make on social media using #KidsCuddleCamp for a chance to be featured on our Sewciety Blog!

 

We'll also be giving away five Cuddle® Kits each day, Quilt Cadets patterns (and other surprise gifts) and notions by Fairfield (pillow forms and Poly-Fil), so be sure to like and share Teresa's live video, and comment with your name and favorite color of Cuddle®, for a chance to win!
