This holiday season there are a ton of toys on my oldest daughter’s wish list. I don’t know a child in her age group that would ask for anything but toys, and even though we love to keep the fun in the holidays, I also want to give her something that can enhance her skills. She is very crafty and works well with her hands, so I would love to introduce sewing to her someday soon. Growing up, my mother and grandmother set up a great foundation for learning how to sew with free embroidery designs at a young age. As I got older, I was able to use my basic skills to go on and take sewing classes and better my skills later on in life. To this day, sewing and knitting is a hobby, and although you won’t see me making scarves anytime soon, I have the skills to make them if I wanted to.
Knitting is a great way to unwind at the end of the day and the pay off is rewarding. The Sewing Kit from Moulin Roty is not a typical toy. Actually, it’s not a toy at all, but it has all the tools necessary to get your budding knitter started. Included in the kit is five colors of knitting wool, thread, scissors, knitting needles, a crochet hook, a cross-stitch pattern, tape measure, buttons, and a mushroom-shaped knitting dolly for making shoelaces. Everything comes in a vintage-inspired case with a metal handle for easy storage and transportation. The kit retails for $63 and can be purchased at NormanandJules.com
This is a charming set any child who has a passion for crafting will love. It has made our holiday gift guide this year!
