Inside: Review of the Great British Sewing Been Sewing Studio.
I have always wanted a sewing machine, there is just something so satisfying about being able to make your own things from scratch. I follow a couple of amazing people on IG who are always making their children outfits and I am always so jealous.
So, when the opportunity arose to review the Great British Sewing Bee Sewing Studio for kids I jumped at the chance. Fun for the girls and fun for me too – win!
Inside the box you’ll find:
- Fabric, ribbon and a button
- A pattern to make your own homemade clutch purse
- Mini sewing kit containing a tape measure, thread and bobbin spools
- Sewing machine
- Foot pedal
- Mains adapter plug
- Clutch bag project instructions
- Sewing machine manual
Gracie was so excited to get started on the clutch bag project, I could tell she felt so grown up being able to sew like mummy. We set up the machine, following the instructions to get it threaded and ready to use!
I like that it comes with a safety guard – no risk of little fingers getting trapped! She was quite nervous to start but by the end she was happily pushing the material through.
Her favourite thing was the pedal and I like that you can opt out of using it, if your little one can’t reach or if they can’t control it well.
The instructions were pretty easy to follow from setting it up to completing the project but we did get in a bit of a muddle towards the end when the needle struggled to go through the multiple layers of material. In the end, I finished the last section off by hand but for a kiddy machine, it did pretty well I’d say.
She has already asked me to buy some more material so she can make more things and you can buy more kits too, if you are like me and have no imagination at all when it comes to projects!
If your little one is crafty then take a look at the sewing studio, it is kid-friendly and makes for a fun activity to do together.
We were sent this sewing station but all words and thoughts are my own.
