This title shows young kids how to stitch using fresh graphics, simple layouts and cool projects in a course-based book, so that they build on their skills at each stage. The book contains a starter section that shows the basic skills, such as threading a needle, sewing applique, transferring a pattern, cutting out a pattern, sewing on buttons and more. The text explains, with step-by-step illustrations, how to sew basic embroidery stitches. A great selection of 20 projects such as I-pod cases, a funky felt cushion, a bag, a book cover and a brooch/corsage allow kids to practise their new found skills. Two illustrated characters, Daisy Doublestitch and Billy Bobbin, show the way to do it.
