After the holidays, the kids were busy with their new “stuff”. Aside from the gifts, they also received money from their Ninang (godmother) and from the coin throwing tradition at a family reunion. Of course, both Coby and Jianne excitedly counted all the money they received that night.
After a few days, they were so eager to buy something with their bags of money haha! My husband and reminded them to spend their money wisely. We allowed them to spend on food only some inexpensive items like a laser pointer for Coby and a rubber ball for Jianne. And they still have some left for the rainy days 🙂
One afternoon, as Jianne and I were window shopping, we chanced upon this Sewing Ballerina doll kit. Her eyes lit up and I saw the excitement in her eyes. I knew she wanted to get that kit for herself being the li’l crafter herself. We talked about it and she decided to get it the following day.
The next day, coming home from a meeting, I dropped by the store and got her craft kit using her own money. She was ecstatic when she saw the box and was too eager to get her hands on that sewing kit. We both looked at the illustrated instructions and were convinced that she can do it by herself. So she did, with minimal assistance from me.
The doll should have been completed in less than an hour but it took her longer because the stitching was wrong. So she had to redo it. But overall, it was an easy project for 8-year-old crafter girl.
Your little girl will surely enjoy sewing her own ballerina doll. You just have to follow the stitching instructions because I did it my way and we ended up redoing the project all over again. Compared to Jianne’s previous craft project using yarn in making an infinity scarf, this one is simpler and easier to complete.
Other kits that we saw by Craftoy were Sewing Princess, Sewing Owl and Sewing Bear. Check them out at your favorite toy stores.
