Printable Sewing Cards
Let Kids Sew Along With You
With these printable sewing cards, also called lacing cards or lace-up cards, your little ones can sew too. You know how kids are: monkey see, monkey do. But you know you can't let younger kids use a real needle and thread.
For beginning sewing projects, use these printable sewing cards so there are no sharp needles to worry about. With these sewing cards, their little fingers use a shoelace instead.
This low-tech sewing technique is also called lacing because shoelaces are used instead of sewing thread. The larger thread of the shoelace is easier for little ones to hold and push through the holes on the lacing sewing cards.

The dot-to-dot pattern in these sewing cards shown here is easy for young kids to follow and so what if they skip a hole? No biggie. Undo it and let them try again.

Shoelaces for Lace Up Cards - The kiddos will need shoelaces to sew with.
Shoelaces, not needles! Yes, this makes sewing so easy and fun.
Small fingers work better with larger objects (think those big fat Crayons that little kids use so well). A shoelace will give kids something to grip on and push through the holes in the lace up cards.
