Buckles & Bobbins: Beginning Sewing Book for Boys
Following the same easy to follow, step-by-step directions as its sister book, Stitches & Pins, this book provides valuable tips and easy and fun projects that boys will enjoy sewing. Patterns are included for 16 excellent projects, including gear cases, bags, fishing and hunting vests, and more. This spiral bound book will make it fun for boys (or even girls) to create their own gear and comes with 80 pages of sewing instructions plus the patterns.
Written by JoAnn Gagnon, a homeschooling mom, these books are perfect for teaching girls (and boys too!) the basics of sewing. Each book progresses in a very step-by-step fashion, first acquainting students with the tools of the trade, then instructing them in the basics. Skill-appropriate projects are featured in each book, along with the patterns, so you won't have to search for a pattern that's simple enough to practice on. Stitches & Pins and Buckles & Bobbins are the place to start with beginners, and then you can follow up with Catch the Sewing Bug, Pins and Needles, or Pintucks & Lace to further build students' sewing skills.
