Fabric Paper Thread 26 Projects to Stitch with Friends by Kristen Sutcliffe

This title helps kids express their creative side with these 26 delightful projects suitable for all skill levels. Using just a few simple crafting and sewing techniques, kids can make 26 colorful, modern projects to use, wear, give, and brighten their personal spaces. They'll learn how to transform tee shirts, tote bags, and more into unique pieces all their own using embroidery stitches, super simple applique, and basic machine sewing. No matter whether they're super crafty or have never even picked up a needle and thread, kids will find something they just have to make. They can craft a fabulous necklace, a cute cover for a boring notepad, or a chic bracelet in no time at all.


C&T Publishing s new imprint FunStitch Studio promises to deliver exciting and creative books for young crafters. Sutcliffe gives step-by-step instructions for making jewelry, embellishing clothing and tote bags, creating room decor, and more. Basic stitches are demonstrated via illustrations: running, backstitch, cross-stitch, lazy daisy, arrow, whipstitch, and blanket. The projects are great to work on individually to keep or give as gifts or to work on as a group during crafting parties and sleepovers. Sutcliffe maintains a craft blog featuring her latest projects so readers can follow her and see more crafts online. Recommended for ages 10 to 13.--Becky Walton Ingram Content, 3/6/13
