Kids Love to Stitch -- Book 2: Hanukkah Projects
Non-fiction / 46 views
Welcome to the designer’s second book in her sewing skill series for children! This book includes 3 patterns for Hanukkah sewing projects plus a bonus project readers can use to help a younger child make a Dreidel Table Pouch using glue instead of a needle and thread.
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 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 three Hanukkah 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.
Projects 1 and 2 are gift card holders in the shapes of a Dreidel and a Star of David, respectively. They are decorated with felt appliques for Project 1 and a pocket for Project 2.
Project 3, a ‘Dreidel Table Pouch’, is a festive felt pouch/pocket decorated with buttons in the shape of a candle. Perfect for holding party favors, treats, goodies, or tableware (napkin, fork, spoon, and knife) for a party or Hanukkah celebration.
** A bonus project which uses glue instead of a needle and thread is a felt Dreidel Table Pouch with a felt candle and flame instead of the buttons used in Project 3 above.
The book includes a link to download and print the patterns included in the book.
