Tutorial: A Dozen Animal Sewing Cards Reprised

Last year I made a little sewing card tutorial, but I decided to create a reprisal of it--mainly so you could access some downloadable instuctions, as well as the graphics. And of course, in the process of creating the new instructions document, I decided to modify some of the original instructions to make it a bit simpler. Then, I also changed up some of the graphics I had in the original set--now there a dozen animal images with dotted cutting lines, as well as punch hole indicators.

And in case you are interested about some of the supplies I used in the photos above...here is what I used and where I purchased it:
I made a set for us yesterday and it took me about an hour--so this is a simple, easy project you can make in an evening or do over the weekend and involve the kiddies. Here is your link to download the project: DOWNLOAD SEWING CARD TUTORIAL

I just printed a couple of these out today and did them with my son. He's almost 3 and loved them! Thanks for sharing with everyone.

This is a fabulous Tut!
We made them with Dinosaurs and laminated them so they last longer.

Thanks so much!

Hi there! Linked here from Sew Mama Sew, just wanted to let you know that in addition to making a complete set for my niece, I also shared this project at work. I work with children who have experienced domestic violence and sexual assault and they got so much joy from this project, and it's all thanks to you! Happy holidays!

Dani--I cannot tell you how happy your comment made me. Really. I mean, the fact that you took this project and shared it with kids who have gone through what those kids have gone through--well, damn if it does not make me want to do a 1000 more tutorials and like all the time I spend doing this is SO worth it. Those kids you work with are near and dear to mey heart for a multitude of reasons that are too personal to state here in a 3 inch comment box, but maybe someday I will share...anyway, thanks for the comment. And thanks for the work you do with those kids.
