Much more than project instructions, this book gives children all they need to know to develop individual sewing skills (and then be able to apply them), presented in a fun, colorful format with lots of photos.
Fix a stuffed animal or turn a favorite t-shirt into a pillow — all these creative projects were chosen for their appeal to children. Covers all the basics (setting up a work area, proper use of sewing tools, choosing materials) and adds plenty of tips for adults and children.
Includes hand- and machine-sewing projects, actual-size patterns, glossary, index, further resources, and a ruler on the back cover. Reinforced, spiral-bound paperback, 144 pages. Ages 5 and up.
Chapters: Welcome to Sewing School!, Hug (pillows, etc.), Hold It! (bags, totes, etc.), Give (gifts), Wear (clothes and costumes), Recycle & Repair (how to hem, patch, and re-purpose), Vet Clinic (stuffed animal repair).
