Super Embroidery Kit

For kids that sew, or just love arts and crafts, this do-it-yourselfer is a practical pick! The iron-on transfers will definitely come in handy for your beginner. Ikea-like instructions show several different stitches to practice step-by-step. Plenty of fun accompaniments like colorful swatches of felt, shapes, letters, beads and sequins make it a pretty complete and colorful starter. Plus, the felt bag it comes in is great for on-the-go crafting, and can be upcycled into a craft or sewing bag. Even the packaging doesn’t waste space! Images on the package show a ridiculous amount of possibilities all on one outfit. It’s all sewn in fun. (Alex, $17.89)
