Spotted at Spruce Street Harbor Park: The cutest little sewing kits, designed so littles can make their own superhero or kitty-cat masks. Turns out, they come courtesy Glenside-based The Little Workshop and owner Ali Dworsack, who says she created the kits to teach kids how to “create a heirloom keepsake that will not only teach them new skills but help them gain confidence in their little creative selves.”

The kits, which are aimed at kids 7 and up, come with everything you need — sewing tools and materials and instructions. (Seems like a fun project to stash away for rainy days, birthday presents, little surprises and the like, no?) And if you’ve missed her at SSHP, you can also find The Little Workshop (and the masks!) on Etsy, or you can hit up the Haddonfield Arts and Crafts Festival on July 8 and 9.

But that’s not all … Ali also does birthday parties for kids aged 4 and up, at the rate of $20 per kid, with a minimum of 6 kids and max of 10 kids. (Actually, you can do more than 10 kids, but there are additional fees per kid after that.) She shows up with two crafts and a game that will keep everyone occupied for about 1.5 hours — and her crafts are textile-based, and completely customizable. (She’ll also provide decorations for additional cost if you want!)

Such a fun find, no!? You can see more here on Etsy, or here on Facebook, or on Insta @tlworkshop.
