Kristin Nicholas knows kids, and she knows crafts. In Kids' Embroidery, she shows kids of all ages how to make 15 fun, colorful projects, including bags, pillows, lampshades, journal covers, scarves, pins, and patches.
Written for children of reading age and older, Kids' Embroidery presents the basics of needlepoint, cross-stitch, and freeform embroidery with clear, step-by-step instructions and bright, hand-painted illustrations. Intriguing sidebars explore such subjects as embroidery traditions around the world; how to host an embroidery party; and fancy stitches that can add an individual touch to almost any piece of clothing. John Gruen's crisp photographs of boys and girls happily crafting complete the upbeat, confidence-building tone of this delightful title.
Share Kids' Embroidery with young stitchers and, before you know it, they'll be chanting-with happiness and pride-"I made this all by myself!"
