lacing cards and sewing task


You can make your own lacing cards with just a few materials you probably have lying around. What you need:

  • cardboard (thin, like from a shirt or cereal box) or foam paper
  • string, yarn, or shoelace
  • scissors
  • hole puncher
  • yarn needle (optional)
1. Trace or freehand a shape on your cardboard or foam paper.
2. Hole punch holes an inch apart or less along the perimeter.
3. Tie a knot in one end of the shoelace or string.
4. Use your shoelace, or string with needle, and thread the other end through a hole to start.

A variation on this task is to cut out two pieces of cardboard or foam paper at the same time. This way you can make a coin purse something else of your own creation!
