5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book Great projects for kids of all ages, 6 Oct 2012
This review is from: Sewing for Children (Hardcover)
I love this book and highly recommend it. I have been using this book to teach my grandchildren and nieces (ages 3,6, 10 and 18) to sew. The younger ones first project was the pompoms. This was followed by the sock monsters which they still love and play with. These projects gave them the enthusiasm to learn more and 6 months in they still look forward to our monthly get togethers and making things that they personalise. They have also made the finger puppets and drawstring bags. The pictures look great and inspire the children to have a go - so far they have picked toys to make and they have loved the results. I have steered the younger ones towards the easier projects that can be completed in one session and gradually they are building up their sewing skills. They have already mastered running stitch, whip stitch and back stitch. My older nieces (age 10 and 18) had a go at the owl and the applique cushion which proved frustrating as first projects for them because they did not realise how long they would take to complete. On reflection, as with the younger ones, a first project that could of been completed in one session (approx 2 hours) would have been better. I have also made the owl as a doorstop for myself which looks really cute and made variations on the needlecase for gifts. All the projects have turned out very much like the pictures. The instructions are really clear and easy to follow. The projects use few materials and I have often been able to use scraps or recycled fabrics and buttons so the cost has been minimal for hours of fun and learning.
