Overview


This fourth book in the My First Sewing Book series introduces machine sewing to children who have already mastered hand sewing. Children learn the parts of a sewing machine, then use practice papers to learn to stitch on straight and curved lines, turn corners, make big and little stitches, make lock stitches, and stitch a curved-line shape. Moving to fabric, they machine-sew and stuff a fabric star as they learn about seam allowances, tapering seams, and snipping and clipping fabric and thread. Additional fabric shapes to enlarge and trace are included on the final page. The My First Machine Sewing Book kit includes the book, fabric for two stars and six practice papers.

Winky Cherry's unique My First Sewing Book program teaches young children not only sewing skills, but life skills: responsibility, commitment, focus, patience, coordination, organization, and how to follow rules, all through the enjoyment of sewing. In six books, levels progress from simple hand sewing, embroidery, and doll making, to machine sewing, patchwork, and quilting. The three hand sewing books feature clever rhyming instructions for children as young as 5. The three machine sewing books are for children ages 7 and older. All six titles have simple, clearly-illustrated instructions.
 
Each book builds on the previous books, and each book can stand alone.
