Kid Sewing Projects
  • Sew
    Clothing and accessories are a totally awesome way for kids — and everyone, really — to express their creativity. But instead of going out and buying new stuff for back to school this year, help your little fashionistas upgrade what they've got with some cool DIY felt patches. They're easy to make and look great ironed onto everything from backpacks to jean jackets.
