The set comes in a sturdy, attractive and quite sizeable little 'suitcase' which is great for storing the sewing projects at all stages, and would also hold some extra sewing supplies if desired. Everything you need for the projects is included, including the thread, needles, fabrics, instructions and the stuffing! The projects are all simple and cute, and little girls especially will love them. The instructions are pretty easy to follow, though supervision will be required for younger children. I would think ages 10 and above would be able to make the projects independently aside from a little help for pressing the items.
I think this is a wonderful gift at a very good price, and I definitely recommend it.
- Instructions - Needles - Threads - Trims & buttons
- Felt pieces (already cut)
- Cotton printed material (this will need cutting (and probably pressing) before the project is started)
- Cardboard 'suitcase' to keep it all together (not the sturdiest of things but am sure will last long enough to keep the materials clean until the projects have been completed.
This is a lovely little gift for a budding young sewist... it's definitely aimed at girls with its pretty pastel colours, cottage cushion, puppy in a handbag and lavender heart, but am sure any keen tailors-in-the-making would be just as pleased to receive it (am not sure any little boys who haven't shown an interest in sewing would be particularly keen to get this as a gift, however!)
The instructions are relatively straightforward, although there is some jumping about between the written instructions, the illustrations and the pictures on the cover just to be sure you know what you're doing. It's not complicated stuff but I would probably recommend an adult is handy, just in case any assistance is needed in following them. An adult would also be needed for pressing and cutting out the shapes in the cotton material (and possibly explaining the cross-stitch as I noted it was the only one not detailed in the 'how to' illustrations).
The price is okay - any higher I would probably not be happy to purchase as a gift but I think £12.36 (as of 29-May-14) is pretty good value for what you get.
She's made the lavender heart, and have given it as a gift. It didn't take her too long, and she didn't lose interest.. something which happens too much at her age. :)
Recommended for the cute projects and gifts - younger children will need supervision, but those around 10 should be able to manage themselves.
