Stitching cards instructions for kids.

Supplies

  • 6 Stitching Cards
  • 1 Paper scissors
  • 1 Pin
  • 1 Rounded point needle
  • Embroidery floss
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Collect all of the materials. Cut the cards and separate them.

    Step 2

    Use a straight pin or a sharp needle to poke holes in the card stock at each dot mark.

    Step 3

    Cut a piece of embroidery floss in a color of your choice.

    Step 4

    Separate out three strands of the floss. These 3 strands are going to make (together) the thread you will use for stitching.

    Step 5

    Thread your needle and tie a knot at one end of the floss. If you don't know how to thread a needle, don't worry. Refer to the next slide to find on-line instructions.

    Step 6

    Instructions on how to thread a needle and tie a knot: http://www.wikihow.com/Thread-a-Needle-and-Tie-a-Knot

    Step 7

    Start stitching, making one straight stitch conecting 2 dots

    Step 8

    This will be the back of your card. The back of your work is almost as important as the front!

    Step 9

    When you reach the end of your floss or have finished with a section, tie a knot in the floss so that it’s close to the back of your card.

    Step 10

    Follow the same instructions for all the cards. And you are done!
