My First Sewing Book
35 easy and fun projects for children aged 7 years +
Here are 35 brilliant projects that will help you learn how to sew. If you’ve never used a needle and thread before, don’t worry—start with the ‘Sewing Techniques’ section, which simply explains how to do every stitch. Then pick something to make from one of the four chapters. In the ‘Toys’ chapter, you’ll find juggling animals, sock monsters and rag dolls, while in ‘Fashion Fun’, there are gorgeous bags, hair accessories and more. Next, discover some brilliant ‘Decorations’—from hanging felt stars to pretty lavender bags. Finally, ‘Great Gifts’ is packed with ideas, such as the finger puppet cards, felt egg cosies or the sausage dog draft excluder. All the instructions and cute step-by-step artworks are easy to follow; plus, each project has a grade so that you can start with easy sewing and move onto using more advanced stitches as you get better at it.
