Sewing for Children 35 Step-by-Step Projects to Help Kids Aged 3 and Up Learn to Sew by Emma Hardy

Crafting expert and mother of two Emma Hardy guides you through each project with clear step-by-step instructions, helping little ones to learn and have fun at the same time. First-timers will find a whole variety of projects to get stuck into, whether it's an animal mask that's suitable for tiny tailors or a drawstring bag for older kids. And once the basics have been mastered, a whole new world of creativity will be unlocked. Sewing is also a great way to use up those scraps of fabric lying around the house - transformed old T-shirts into toys, felt into cupcakes, and more. With 35 simple projects for boys and girls, each one designed specifically to help children learn to sew, this is the perfect book for beating boredom and entertaining little ones in a naturally inventive way.
