Kids everywhere discovering the wonder and joy found in simple needle and thread. And while sewing offers lots of benefits for children -- it nurtures creativity, cognitive ability, coordination, and confidence and is a skill they'll use their whole lives -- kids know that it's just plain fun."" Authors Amie Petronis Plumley and Andria Lisle teach a sewing camp in Tennessee that has earned praise from delighted children and parents. When families clamored for more, Plumley and Lisle launched a blog, sewingschool.blogspot.com, to rave reviews. Now, they've channeled the best of their children's sewing projects into this lively, how-to sew book for ages five and up. Featuring 21 inspired projects for young sewers," Sewing School" allows kids to create fabric masterpieces with minimal supervision. All projects have been kid-tested, most can be made using simple hand stitches, and all can be embellished with personal touches. To further inspire young crafters, the book is full of photos and quotes from real boys and girls who have participated in the authors' sewing camp. Projects include items that children can hug (pillows, doll, blanket), hold (wallet, tote, drawstring pouch), give as gifts (coasters, glasses case, pot holder), and wear (sleep mask, hat, cuffs). Each project features step-by-step instructions written at a second-grade reading level, a close-up photo of every step, and a photo of the finished project. The book includes full-sized cutout patterns and instructions for how grown-ups can help.
Fair. A pattern or two have been cut to medium size, but it seems like it would be pretty easy to add an inch or so to make it large if necessary Open Books is a Non-profit literacy organization and proceeds from the sale benefit literacy programs.
