Sewing Machine Basics for Children

£12.99

A fun step-by-step guide to machine sewing by Angela Pressley

Pre-order
Book Description

A complete course in machine-sewing for children aged 711

Sewing is a skill that has so many benefits for children and can give them real pride in their achievements. Angela Pressley has been teaching children to sew for over 13 years, and knows how to encourage and inspire them to learn, starting with the basics and building up a portfolio of skills. She has designed 30 projects that will help them cement the knowledge they've gained, from sewing simple seams to patchwork, curves and corners, hems, patch pockets, linings and so much more. The book starts with an introduction to the sewing machine and some of the basis skills and equipment needed to sew. Then there are four sections starting out, getting better, and you've got this and you're a star each beginning with a techniques section, followed by projects that put into practice the skills just learned. As children progress through the levels they will learn how to make their own toys, bags, accessories and clothes, and will be encouraged to put their own creative ideas into their sewing.
