Product Description:

When we first reviewed this product, Melissa & Stephanie (then age 10) had so much fun sewing the first project (ducks) that during the next three days they made Humphrey Whale, Squirrel Nutkin, Ali Alligator, and nine more stuffed animals. Only the need to use the kitchen table for something other than sewing kept them from completing the whole zoo. Patterns for these animals are placed over two pieces of felt, and the felt is cut. Children then make dots 1/8" apart and 1/8" along the edge of felt. Needle and thread are drawn through each hole until sewing is 90% complete. Add stuffing, finish sewing the remaining length, and they have a new stuffed animal. Instructions are simple enough for very young children to follow and in rhyme for easy memorization. Includes book, two precut felt shapes, 3 yards each of 4 colors of crochet thread, and 43 patterns for additional projects.

Category Description for My First Sewing Books:

Author Winky Cherry believes that children should learn to sew by hand before they learn to use a sewing machine. Hand sewing skills develop finger dexterity, and teach the value of patience and practice. This series gently leads children through their first sewing experiences.

Sewing is part of the Montessori preschool-kindergarten classroom. The children love the sewing projects and look forward to opportunities to sew. I wanted to have options at home for the children to continue their love of sewing.

I purchased this to use as a handcraft fro my 7 yr old daughter and 5 year old son. It is a great, simple way to teach hand sewing. The instructions are very simple and written out in rhyme. My 5 year old son is 1/2 way through his 1st project (bird) in just under 20 mins!
