Creating doll clothes is a wonderful first sewing project for little ones. It's wonderful because they learn a lot about sewing, how clothes are put together and the hard work that goes along with the process. What's more, when they are finished with the first project they are ready to begin more challenging doll clothes.
My five year old constantly watches her eleven year old sister sew clothes for her polar bear and now has advanced another step in her own sewing. She wanted a much more complicated dress for Hedgie and was willing to do all the sewing herself. I helped her cut out the pieces and pin them together, but she did the rest.
For more ideas for a budding seamstress check out my craft page and my older daughter's blog. She writes all about the clothes she has created for her polar bear. There are tons of good ideas.
