I just can't get over what a cute, perfect book this is for little girls! I would say there is something here to interest the beginner from age 4 to 12 (obviously with big differences in how independently they work). It starts with a couple of pages about how to make your own sewing basket, if you don't want to buy one. Your child could help with this, of course. My daughter received the book at five with a sewing basket full of all the recommended products and it has been the biggest hit!

The book is just a winner all around. Some of the projects include transferring your child's drawings onto fabric to embroider (a PERFECT gift item for grandparents!), embellishing a t-shirt, tapestry and cross-stitch work, sewing a doll and simple clothes, drawstring pouches, lavender bags, felt lockets and stuffed toys (especially good for young beginners, as felt is so easy to work with), felt flowers (to embellish hair clips, pony tails, etc.), ribbon bag, and felt cupcakes and pincushions. The knitting section includes purses, hats and scarves with pompoms using knitting dolls (even teach you how to make one yourself), finger knitting and needles.

If you're looking for the perfect gift for a little girl, this is it. Collect a basket of supplies and wait for the creative genius to start.

This book is a beautiful and fun intro to fabric and yarn arts. Photos and ideas are colorful and creative. Instructions are clear photos and easy step to step. My grand daughter, aged 7, spent a week with me. This book kept us busy and happy all week as she learned so much. The book will be great for her older cousin too.

I got this book out of our local library and will now be buying it for my niece for Christmas. The pictures are great, the instructions are clear and the projects are interesting (things I would like to have around). I especially appreciate the "can do " attitude the author has in approaching her projects. She doesn't insist on needing to buy tools like pompom makers or spool knitters. In the true spirit of DIY and crafting she tells you how to use cardboard or paper clips. Love it! I might need a copy for me!

A friend of mine had this book at a knitting group our daughters attended together. Once I looked through it that day, I knew I HAD to get it for my daughter! It's perfect for girls age 6-7 on up. It has given me lots of ideas for crafts I can do with all of my children (boys too!). And all of the projects don't really require expensive materials to make. In fact, the book encourages girls to be thrifty and find bits of materials, buttons, ribbon, etc around the house and collect them for making the crafts.

The instructions for needlepoint, which I had always thought was too intimidating, were VERY easy and broken down so well that a small child could do it easily. I'm buying several of these to keep on hand to give as birthday gifts for young girls.

My only complaint about this book is that it isn't longer!

The photos are descriptive and show step by step photo instructions on how to create the projects as well as a photo of the completed projects. Everything about the book is cheerful and fun. I purchased it for my daughter and the subsequently for several friends daughters for birthday gifts along with some of the project elements so they could get started. It makes a GREAT gift. Super fun for those rainy summer days when there's nothing to do. FIVE STARS!

I purchased this for my daughter along with a bunch of other sewing "stuff", she read the whole thing cover to cover, quietly plotting her next project! It is pretty basic, but photos are good and seem to stimulate the creative juices.

This book is simply beautiful. The projects are adorable yet simple and have clear and easy to follow instructions. I would highly recommend for any child interested in learning fiber arts/crafts.

Our granddaughter found this book at the library, and she liked it so much, i ordered it for her. She is almost 8 years old, and very fashion minded, and is learning to sew. She's very proud of her button sewing skills, and she's made 2 skirts with elastic waists that she wears all the time. This little pink book has lots of basic information on sewing and even knitting. The projects are very interesting for a young person...i'd say it's a girlie book, but a boy would find interesting projects as well. It's PINK.

The templates are tucked in the covers, easy to trace. She can't wait to make the fabric flowers, and the dolls.

Her 10-year-old cousin was equally taken with the book, so i'll probably be ordering another.
