Sewing Lessons

by This is Carrie on September 4, 2008

Thanks to a couple of really great (and fun) books on the subject, Princess has been enjoying her sewing lessons (though she can’t wait to graduate from paper to fabric).

Gosh I wish my machine was that sassy.

I totally have to get those books! I can’t sew a stitch! Ok, a sewing machine might help, too…. 😉

We used some books from Amazon for my 13-year-old when she was about 7 or so. She loooved them, and now she has a thrift-store-purchased old JCPenney machine she can bust out whenever she likes! Does my heart good…

I had an adult student who has the same Hello Kitty machine, btw, and loved everything about it except the lack of a zipper foot. Super cute to look at, and sews great!

I get a PRIZE for finding this post in your archives – I remember reading it when originally posted and when a friend asked about sewing books for her kids it took me a bit to find it – but yeah! Are these still the best books you recommend for teaching kids to sew? I’m a very basic sewer, but my kids are itching to learn, too. Thanks, Carrie!
