New Cut and Sew Doll Ornaments Kits and Handmade Ornaments Sets for It's Raining Doll Parties


I can remember when I was a young girl running to show my mother my latest craft or sewing project. She would tell me it was wonderful or beautiful and I would leave with a big smile on my face. Sometimes she would point out a few things I could improve upon. It was never a criticism just a lesson in improving one's skill. Being the perfectionist that I am I would either take it apart and fix it or replace it with a brand new piece.

In thinking about my custom fabric cut and sew doll ornaments I decided that with time being a commodity these days one way to teach kids how to sew would be to create cut and sew doll kits grouped by theme, season, or holidays. The kits would include the fabric pieces for the group and instructions for finishing the doll via machine stitching or by blanket stitching. By including two different ways to finish the ornaments kids could learn machine stitching and blanket stitch embroidery, too.And, by grouping the ornaments by theme, season, or holiday you could organize craft activities for groups of kids or for families to do together. So, I decided to put some kits together.

The cut in sew doll ornaments in each group could be machine finished like the groups shown in the picture above. Or, the edges could be blanket stitched like the groups shown in the picture below.

The kits provide an easy and quick way for beginners or beginning sewing groups to learn how to hand sew and machine sew. And, maybe even how to blanket stitch. Plus, the kids end up with an adorable ornament to keep or give as a gift. That will definitely put a smile on their faces.

Fast and Easy Cut and Sew Dolls Is A Great Way To Teach Kids How To Sew


When I was designing my cut and sew dolls I couldn't help but think about my own experiences as a child learning how to sew and thought that cut and sew dolls would not only be a good way to teach a young child how to hand sew but also how to teach them how to machine sew as they could be put together either way. Plus, they quickly see the results of their efforts.

My mother and her best friend taught me how to sew when I was about ten years old. First they made me practice sewing two pieces of fabric together by hand until my running stitches were even and I knew the difference between a running stitch, straight stitch, back-stitch, etc. Then they explained the various types of stitches and their use and some of the sewing terminology.

I, of course, was anxious to start with the sewing machine. Just let me make something.  They tried to explain that I needed to master the hand stitches before moving on to the sewing machine. I couldn't understand why back then. I can now.  I wanted to create something right then and there.


When they were happy with my hand sewing I moved on to the sewing machine. First they explained how the machine worked, the different parts of the machine, the different machine heads, the different stitches, winding bobbins, etc. I couldn't move on until I knew this. I had no idea when I wanted to learn how to sew how much I needed to learn first. I was ready to go. Let me at the sewing machine - now.

Finally, the day came when I was allowed to start my machine sewing - or so I thought. Au contraire!
