My Take on the Book
Rosa M. Curto has written an easy to read and follow book of beginning hand sewing projects for children. I feel she has done a wonderful job in not only the step by step illustrations and photos of the completed project, but also the easy to read and follow directions for each project. Patterns are included at the end of the book for your child to copy and use in the projects.
The author includes tips like to be patient with yourself as you learn, you can substitute materials if you don't have something like string for ribbon, and to ask for help to name a few. There are over 30 projects in the book. She illustrates various stitches and even has directions on how to sew buttons in four ways.
Some of the projects include: hand and finger puppets, book marks, placemats, cards, journal covers, and magnets.
If you have a child who enjoys sewing or crafts, I think you will find this book one that can be used quite independently and successfully.
