 Non-fiction / 172 views


Welcome to the designer’s first book in her new sewing skill series for children!

This ‘Kids Love to Stitch’ sewing book was written for children ages 7 to 12. In the book, readers will learn how to:

— Make a sewing kit;
— Reuse materials found around the house to make a project;
— Work with acrylic craft felt;
— Make patterns;
— Cut out project pieces using patterns;
— Sew a Running Stitch, make simple buttonholes, and sew on a button; and
— Stay safe while sewing.

To make these patterns user-friendly for children around the world, all patterns include the measurements in Imperial and Metric. The instructions for these two Picnic Projects include detailed cutting and sewing instructions with stepped-out photos to aid readers as they learn to sew. There is a Glossary of sewing terms used in the book.

Project One, a ‘Picnic Pouch’, is a festive felt pouch/pocket decorated with a star applique and buttons. Perfect for holding party favors, treats, goodies, or tableware (napkin, fork, spoon, and knife) for a party or picnic.

Project Two, ‘TIC-TAC-TOE Game & Storage Bag’ features a felt game board, X and O game pieces, and a felt storage bag. Perfect for fun-on-the-go for a camping trip, outdoor adventure, car or airplane trip, or poolside party.

The book includes a link to download and print the patterns included in the book.
