Craftsy hosts a free craft for teenagers from designer Ms. Elaineous
Learning how to make a lanyard can be a great beginner sewing craft for teens. This sewing pattern is particularly ideal for those new to sewing as it uses only sewing in a straight line and doesn't need expensive fabric. In fact, use scraps of fabric for a unique, patchwork look. Lengthen the lanyard sewing pattern for a custom leash, great for babies and puppies alike, or even attach a small pooch pouch or change purse.
