book for kids to learn hand sewing?

Recommended Posts

Any books to recommend? My dd (10yo) would like to learn some basic sewing & I'm afraid I don't really know much about it.


Are there any books w/ great illustrations & descriptions?


For example, I think it would be fun if she could end up being able to make some of the felt food &/or dolls from using patterns from here:


(By the way, if you sign up for this gal's emails, you will get a free pattern to make felt strawberries.)


Before we tackle something like those projects, I'd love to go through a sewing book that explains some basic stitches, etc....

I love the book the others have recommended for littles. For your daughter's age, I think See and Sew might be more appropriate since it has more stitches and a bit more about basic sewing. Someone gave it as a gift for my dd4 and it's too much for her age but would be perfect for a 10 year old, I think. The one the others recommended is right on for my daughter now and might be too simple for 10.
