Further Adventures with a Toddler Sewing Basket and adapted the idea to use for a slightly older child.
|Some of the items in Emily's basket. Scissors, yarn needles, hoops, a crocheted pin cushion. I also got a spool knitter and some yarn for each girl.|
|Julia's pin cushion|
|The original blog post suggested plastic shelf liner for cross stitching on. I was uncertain as to how it would work, but it works wonderfully well! I stitched a sample for each girl's basket and then added roll of shelf liner for her to use.|
|I included some simple cross stitch charts, too.|
|I found printable sewing cards on line and printed them out on cardstock (some of which I printed out myself using free printable scrapbooking papers). These were a big hit with Emily and her older brother too.|
|I was so pleased to find this container for Julia's basket at Ocean State Job Lot, of all places.|
