Milk jug sewing card fun is perfect for toddlers.
Because the sewing cards are cut out of milk jugs, they are very sturdy. So young children can easily use them.
The cards can be left plain so they can be stitched randomly, or you can draw pictures on them and punch around them for a child to follow.
Simple pictures work best for milk jug sewing cards.
Knife or Scissors
How to Create a Milk Jug Sewing Card.
1. Wash and dry a milk jug.
2. Choose a side you want to use and cut out the entire flat area, making it as large as you can.
The easiest way to cut it is to start the cut with a knife, and then use scissors to finish it.
All the sides on mine are a little curved as I was trying to make them as big as possible.
Be sure all the edges are completely smooth.
3. If you are going to draw a picture on it, do so now. I try to use the most simple designs.
4. Punch holes around the edge of the picture.
Try to make the holes evenly spaced and not too close together.
5. If you are leaving the card blank to allow random sewing, just punch holes all over the card.
The milk jug sewing card is ready to be stitched.
Make a sewing card gift set.
You can make a small set for a gift by including a few cards with pictures on them and one or two blank ones
Add a few colored shoe laces to complete the kit.
If you don’t want to draw your own pictures, I find simple children’s coloring books have great patterns.
The small shape is 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 inches.
The large one is 5 x 5 1/2 inches.
