Simplified Sewing Cards

M really wants to be able to do those sewing cards made for preschoolers, but they frustrate her and usually end in a sad, tangled mess on the floor. 

Today I made a simplified version.  Two things made it easier:

1.  Numbered holes.  Otherwise its really hard for her to keep track of where she is- especially because it involves flipping the card after each stitch.

2.  Pipe cleaners for thread (so it doesn't tangle as easily)

She likes the cute little pipe cleaner purse she made!

numbered holes does seem like it would help.
