It’s that time of the year again. Sew a Softie in July.
I can’t believe what started out as a one day event is now a month of daily simple to sew softie tutorials.
With Summer camps in the US and many other countries around the world cancelled, Sew a Softie in July offers a great alternative for parents who want to get their kids learning a new skill without spending hours staring at a screen.
And once kids get the sewing bug …they won’t want to stop. Here’s a quick rundown of what will be happening!
So what is Sew a Softie in July?
It’s a month of daily simple to sew softie tutorials. Also, kid ambassadors join in and teach a friend how to sew softie or host a Sew a Softie Party.

To get adults and kids learning to sew.
How do I join in?
What if I can’t sew?
The tutorials are made for newbies. Really simple, with step by step photos and/or a video to show you what to do.
You can have a look at my videos on how to sew basic stitches.
I still need help.
Great! Join the Sew a Softie facebook group and ask away.
What materials do I need?
Your basics will be fabric/felt, needle and thread, pins or sewing clips, stuffing and glue. Some projects might require ribbons or lace and a button.
