My name is Jenn and I share sewing, other creative adventures, and snippets of our daily life at A Jennuine Life. I recently taught my then four (now five) year old daughter, Arden, how to sew and we created a series called Tiny Sewists: Teaching Kids to Sew. I also design children's sewing patterns under my label Jennuine Design.
For today's Craft Camp, I created a project that is perfect for kids of all ages to sew for themselves! Arden sewed her own Camper Cowl, shown here. This is a digital pattern that you can print at home on regular paper along with a step by step tutorial.
You'll need access to a sewing machine for this project and basic sewing skills. Two 1/3 yard cuts of fabric, or one 2/3 yard cut is all that it takes! The downloadable instructions for the Camper Cowl can be found here or you can click on the picture of the pattern cover above!
*fabrics pictured above are from the Petite Paris Collection (Coming soon!)
Once you've opened the file, print the pattern pieces at full size, gather your materials and let's get sewing! This cowl is sized to fit kids all the way through adults. That means you can make some for yourself, your friends and for Mom & Dad! It's a quick project, so you'll have time to make several with all your favorite fabrics. Get together with your friends and gift/swap/trade away!

Thanks so much for letting me come play counselor for a day! I'm in love with the fabrics we used to make our cowl and we have more planned! Arden wants to make one for her little sister and her friends at daycare.
Super cute project! Maybe I can get my girl to sit still long enough...
Perfect beginner project! Thanks for sharing
