All of the extra time spent at home on the weekends has given me lots of time to craft with the kids. They have started playing the game Among Us so I came up with this plushie pattern for them. Made out of felt, this is an easy sewing project for kids.
Sewing is an excellent handicraft for kids of all ages! This project can used with hand sewing or machine sewing.
My oldest two who are 10 & 12 made it by themselves. However, even younger kids can make this easily with a little help! My 6 year old cut out the pieces and operated the foot pedal while I guided the fabric in the sewing machine.
I used a sewing machine for this project but this would also be a great project for hand sewing. Felt is great for beginner sewing because the edges do not fray.
I have included a free printable pattern and instructions so you can make them at home! Click on the link at the bottom of this post to download.
Fall is when I pick up my knitting needles again and enjoy cozying up on the couch with a knitting project. I love the look of leather tags on knit/crochet items. I came up with this DIY version that is easy to create at home with some leather and heat transfer vinyl. I am giving you the free SVG file below too!
I made my tags out of leather from a thrifted bag. I am always on the lookout for leather bags and jackets when thrifting! To make these tags you will need leather (or faux leather), Heat transfer vinyl, my free cut file which you’ll find below, and a hammer and nail.
First you will cut a 1 inch by 2 inch rectangle out of the leather. Then using the hammer and Nail you will punch a hole in each corner of the tag. Be careful not to punch too close to the edge or the hole could rip. Use a piece of scrap wood under while you hammer.
Now you will cut your design out of vinyl and apply it to your tag. Make sure when weeding the vinyl to remove the outline as shown below. It is a bit tedious because it is such a small piece. I used a hair straightener to apply my vinyl to the leather. It works great for small applications like this! I just put parchment paper between the straightener and the leather.
Now you get to sew your finished tag on and admire how professional your handknit looks!
If you make your own tags I’d love to see how they look on your hand knit or Crochet creations! Tag me on Instagram @handmadejoydesigns #handmadejoyblog

I am terrible at hand embroidery so I decided to use heat transfer vinyl for the doll’s face. I made a cut file for the eyelashes and mouth. Free download available below! I ironed the vinyl on the face before sewing the doll together.
The eyelashes measured about 2.5 inches across and the mouth about 0.75 inches wide.
Such a fun sewing project to experminet with texture and fabric. Go make one for all the little girls you know!
If you make one please tag me on instagram @handmadejoydesigns #handmadejoyblog. I would love to see what you created!
Christmas is fast approaching and one of my favourite things to do is make handmade gifts for friends and family. I try to make at least one handmade gift for each of my boys every year. The key to getting them under the tree is starting early. I’m terrible for this and usually spend the morning of Christmas Eve sewing, crafting, and knitting to finish up gifts.
This year I created this Handmade Gift planner to get organized and keep me on track. I am giving it to you as a free download! You can keep track of the tutorial and patterns you plan to use and the supplies you need to have on hand to create your handmade gifts.
