DGD's made notebook covers. We cut felt to fit the small notepads in the colors of their choice. Thread was embroidery floss. Skills worked on were threading needles, knotting thread, stitching nice even stitches. It was excellent work for a first time. The younger one, who was not as enthusiastic about the project before she began, said when she was well into it, "I didn't know it was going to be this much fun!"
