Sewing School: 21 Projects Kids Will Love
Know where your needle is at all times! Be safe and take your time! Remember that nothing has to be perfect! These are the authors' rules for children learning to sew for the first time. Color photos and clear directions make this one user-friendly book and a good choice for visual learners. Starting at age 5, you can teach your children to make basic stitches used in several simple project ideas. First they make a basic sewing kit and practice stitches, then they get to make a pin cushion and original stuffed toy. Later they can make a skirt, modify a t-shirt, even repair old clothes and toys. This book seems easier to use than some of our others that have more elaborate directions or projects. Age appropriate for little kids and non-sewing mothers. It may not be pretty at first, but it will be original and hopefully encourage future sewing enthusiasts! ~ Sara
color photographs accompany each step. I would recommend this gem of a book to any beginner sewer, child or adult.
