Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
And for who would rather forego the chef's hat for needle and thread, Kids' Embroider: Projects for Kids of All Ages by Kristin Nicholas, photos by John Gruen, describes the tools of the trade and basics like threading a needle, then moves on to needlepoint, cross-stitch and even "fancy stitches." Step-by-step diagrams pave the way to finished projects, pictured in crisp photographs. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Nicholas's (Knitting for Baby) long-standing love of embroidery and of working with children is evident in this fetching introduction to the craft, which will be welcomed both by seven- to 12-year-olds and by adults looking for an embroidery primer. By completing 15 easy projects, the reader will learn the fundamentals of needlepoint, cross-stitch, freeform embroidery, and looped and fancy stitches. Projects include coasters, greeting cards, pillows, journal covers, and even old-fashioned cat and dog figures cut out of felt and embroidered with Persian wool. Sidebars abound, with mini-essays on embroidery around the world, recycling fabrics, using a hoop, transferring designs to fabric, samplers, hosting an embroidery party, and embellishing clothing with stitchery. A good buy for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
