I was thinking of putting together a kind of "learn to sew" kit as a Christmas present for dd. I've seen some commercial kits for sewing stuffed animals, purses and the like, but I've never taken too close a look. Does anyone have any ideas for how I can make my own kit? I was thinking maybe of doing a sew-a-cat-stuffy kit. Would it work to cut out the shapes out of... felt?, maybe include buttons for the eyes, embroidery floss and a darning needle to sew with? And of course polyfil or something to stuff it. Should I make little holes where she should be sewing?
Any thoughts on the specifics and any further ideas of what else could be included would be greatly appreciated! :)
