Kara's Party Ideas Vintage Sewing 7th Birthday Party! | Kara's Party Ideas

Today’s winning party feature goes to this darling VINTAGE SEWING BIRTHDAY PARTY submitted by Pure Joy Events. Christine’s daughter, Kate became hooked on sewing after receiving a sewing kit and toy sewing machine from Santa. A few weeks later…she asked for a sewing birthday party. What a cute theme!

Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane fabric collection became the inspiration for the party. On the day of the party, the children’s playroom was transformed into a sewing room, complete with a vintage rotary sewing machine, vintage spools of thread and hand-made pin cushions. Christine created a simple backdrop by stretching fabric on embroidery hoops of various sizes and hanging them on a giant cork board. Vintage blue mason jars holding fresh flowers were placed on each of the tables, and DIY ruffled fabric garlands {tutorial here} were draped across chair backs.

Sewing themed desserts included a sewing basket cake by PhoebeCakes, spool of thread cape pops {tutorial found here}, and sugar cookies by JP Creatibles.

For one activity, the girls used embroidery thread to stitch their first initial and a flower onto eco-felt that was stretched over a hoop {you can purchase this craft kit here}…
The girls guessed the number of buttons in a jar {answer was 157} and played a few rounds of “hoop toss”…

Beautifully sewn pencil pouches by Bagel Creations and hand-crafted button cards were give to guests as they left the party…
