This book is aimed at teaching young children to sew, all the projects were tested by 7-13 year olds. The first section of the book is presented as a series of sewing lessons to help the child get to grips with the machine, from loading the bobbin and threading it to practising the different stitches. All instructions come with step by step instructions plus a photo for every single step making it easy enough for a child to follow.
The rest of the book features 20 different sewing projects split into the following sections: In My Room, Let's Go, Time To Play and The Great Outdoors. Projects include wall pockets, bags, a zippy pouch, cushion, and a quilt. I have to say I fancy making the eHold bag myself, it's a padded messenger style bag to protect and carry your electronic gadgets.
The book itself is spiral bound so I will easily stay open on the right page and allow your child to follow the pictures. Plus it comes with full size pattern pieces in the back! There's also a very useful trouble shooting guide at the back too to help children overcome common sewing problems and a guide to hand sewing too.
I think this book would be great to get children sewing, and even for beginner adults who like visual learning. This book includes a lot more pictures than the adult sewing books and breaks things down very simply.
