My First Stitching and Sewing Book Learn How to Sew with These 35 Cute & Easy Projects : Simple Stitches, Sweet Embroidery, Pretty Applique by CICO Kidz

Sewing is fun - learn how to stitch with this step-by-step guide. You'll soon be a sewing whiz, using a wide variety of hand stitches, as well as learning how to sew in a zip, how to sew on buttons and how to embroider and applique. In Jewellery and Accessories, you can make adorable watermelon slice brooches or a fun raccoon scarf, whilst Toys and Dolls has a fake fur teddy bear, which would make a great gift, although he's so sweet you'll want to keep him for yourself. You can also make a bunch of colourful felt bugs to play with - your littlest family members will love them. Next is Stationery and Storage, which makes being organised fun! You'll be the star of your class with the monster pencil case, and the customised tote bag is perfect to carry your books in. Learn some beautiful embroidery stitches with the monogrammed pillowcase in Gift Ideas, or why not surprise a friend for their birthday with some personalised bunting? All of the projects have simple step-by-step artworks to guide you, plus a clearly marked skill level so that you can start with the simpler projects and move on to more challenging crafts as you become a more confident stitcher.
