For kids who have mastered hand sewing, machine sewing opens up exciting new possibilities! Sewing School 2 offers 20 creative projects designed for children ages 7 and up, including cloth pencil cases, purses, wall pockets, and even a fabric guitar. Illustrated step-by-step instructions show kids how to thread a sewing machine, select an appropriate stitch, and choose fabrics and patterns that evoke their own unique style. Suggestions for creative variations open up endless possibilities for kids to imaginatively personalize their fabric creations.
This sequel to Sewing School focuses on teaching children and preteens how to use a sewing machine to create fun and quirky projects. The kid-friendly ideas included here are easy to cut and sew, making them virtually frustration proof, and the samples pictured use colorful and whimsical fabrics that will attract children. Each project lists step-by-step instructions complemented by photographs that clearly depict how each step should look. Additionally, there are plenty of images of children sewing (mostly girls, though there are a few boys mixed in), along with advice from young sewists. VERDICT While children are the target audience, adult beginners may appreciate the pleasant tone and accessible projects. Grown-ups will find as well many useful tips for helping young people who are interested in sewing.
