4.0 out of 5 stars A good source of inspiration for do-at-home projects for kids, 10 Sep 2013
By 
This review is from: My First Sewing Book (Cico Kidz) (Paperback)
My First Sewing Book is ideal for children from age 7 upwards but I think that many of the 35 sewing projects are the type of activity that my daughter (nearly 5) and I could get started on together.

Every project has step-by-step instructions that I find easy to understand. Projects such as a simple felt bag in the shape of a cat, a sock monster or an egg cosy might be attemptable with a slightly younger child such as my daugher - in fact, we intend to make a Christmas Stocking together in the run up to Christmas as well as some very simple felt tree decorations which she can help me to cut and can add her own embroidery to as a first foray into the world of needlework.

I picture my daughter spending an entire school holiday at some point in the future working through lots of the projects in the book - for slightly more adventurous children there are instructions for making rag dolls and their clothes, a gardening bag or a lovely owl doorstop/cushion.

Lots of the projects involve recycling of fabric that you might already have around the house such as old t-shirts or fabric cut-offs. Most of the exercises use simple running stitches but some of the gifts and more decorative pieces involve more decorative stitches.

I think this is a great introduction to sewing, both for creating pieces but also for decorating them and I can't wait to get started with my two girls.
