My 3 year old daughter loves to "sew", so we whipped up these quick lacing cards. That way, she can sew little dresses anytime she wants. She loves that they are personalized with her own artwork. They make a great busy bag item, too!

What You'll Need

How We Did It

DIY Lacing Cards
Gather your materials and cut out your clip art shapes. We used a variety of dresses to play on the sewing theme.
DIY Lacing Cards
Let your little artist go to work coloring in each shape.
DIY Lacing Cards
For extra stability we choose to laminate each piece. You could also cover them with clear contact paper.
DIY Lacing Cards
Use your hole puncher to make holes going around the entire shape. Older kids can do this step themselves.
DIY Lacing Cards
Let your little seamstress go to work! My 3 year old still needs a little practice but she sure loves it :)
