Now I Can Sew

This exciting new title from the editor of Making Jewellery magazine is the ideal introduction to hand sewing for children from the ages of 8 and up. Most of the projects will use felt as the base material because it comes in a wide range of colours, is easy to cut and doesn’t fray; it can also be sewn using big needles that don’t have to be razor sharp! Felt also has the advantage of being cheap and widely available. The book contains a tools and materials section as well as a section on techniques which will include: running, back and blanket stitch. Other techniques are covered in projects throughout the book. The book contains twenty projects, many of which will appeal to boys as well as girls, including: Noughts and crosses game with felt pocket, Finger puppets, Headband, Pencil case, Book cover, Cushion, Drawstring bag, Wall hanging mobile.
