Preschooler Sewing

My youngest is three and she likes to be involved in everything we do.  She has done some hand sewing before, but likes to have me hold the fabric for her. When I was at the store recently, I remembered to look for an embroidery hoop for her.

We tried out the new hoop today with a scrap of muslin. She still wanted me to hold the hoop, but we both were much less likely to get poked. 

It was a perfect little project. We used fairly short strands of thread and changed colors frequently. 

She enjoyed making some x's and making different length stitches. The hoop is 4" diameter.
