My First Doll Book & Kit
Making a doll is a way for a child to make a friend! Using the hand-sewing skills learned in My First Sewing Book and My First Embroidery Book, children make a felt doll version of themselves, PLUS they learn to make simple clothes. They can go on to make all kinds of dolls, with different faces, hair and clothing. Kit includes two cut-out dolls (two different skin tones) plus crochet thread, and yarn for hair.
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.
