View Full Version : Tween sewing birthday party ideas?

11-08-2015, 08:25 PM
My daughter just turned 12. We are late in planning her friend party. She thinks she wants to have a craft party at a nearby farm. Maybe sewing. So I'm trying to come up with ideas for sewing. Can anyone help?

So far I have:

Pajamas pants
Small clutch that kids could use for their "emergency stash" in their lockers since everyone is close to entering puberty
Other kind of purse

Any other craft ideas people have found successful for this age group?

I was thinking pajama pants, pillow, or no sew blanket.

Do you think the girls will have prior sewing experience? If not, a pillow case is the starter project that my local fabric store offers for Girl Scout troop groups aged 9+. I think 12 year olds would still like it. They can use two different fabrics (one for the main part and one for the edge.) It includes an intro to using a sewing machine, how to use a pattern, etc. The girls were a mix of 9-12 and they all really liked it. Curious about pajama pants- that sounds like fun too!
