By P. Gould VINE VOICE on May 27, 2009
This is a nice introduction to sewing for about ages 5 to 9. The project ideas are pretty cute and the fabric and trims are colorful, so most kids will be excited about making the stuffed animals and the bag, at least. (We didn't have a book of the correct size for the book cover project, but used the fabric for something else.) The projects aren't too complicated for beginning sewers but are neat enough to interest a (slightly) more experienced young seamstresses. My one criticism is that the scissors are just toys, and do not cut at all, and the "thimble" is also pretty useless if your child really needs to push a stitch through.

I purchased this item for my 9 year old grand daughter for Christmas. At first she didn't seem interested so I didn't push it. After sitting on her shelf for a couple of months, she finally expressed an interest in learning to start to sew. Upon opening it and going thru everything we decided to get started on the basic pouch so she could get used to the simple steps.

The instructions were not clear enough for a nine year old to understand without lots of help from an adult. I would like to have seen "kid friendly " instructions included so she could feel more successful.

The thread was very hard to get through the eye of the needle that was included in this kit, so I gave her a needle with a larger eye, from my sewing kit.

After the beginning project, she was able to complete the stuffed animal projects with a little to no assistance from me.

Although I do not sew as a hobby, this was a good place for my grand daughter to start exploring the sewing world and I think shes hooked!

I purchased this for my 6 year old daughter, the contents of the kit are nothing more than a travel sewing kit combined with all of $3 worth of sewing supplies. No patterns were including only extremely basic instructions and little more. Included scissors don't work at all. The needles are regular sized needles and not of a large (and dulled type) that one would expect with a "first" sewing kit.

You'd do better to search inside the drawers of your bedside table and odds and end drawer and dump it into a bag than to purchase this useless kit.

I bought this for my granddaughter and am very disappointed. The needle threader broke right away, the heads on the pins came off, the plastic thimble had a hole in it right away, and the scissors were useless. She was interested in sewing, so I went and purchased better quality equipment to make it safe and complete.

This was a huge hit with my 9 year old granddaughter! It the perfect starter kit for kids that want to learn how to sew. The kit is filled with pre-cut felt, pin cushion, scissors, stuffing, needle threader, pins and needles and other goodies to decorate their creations. She has spend countless hours making all kinds of fun things!

I purchased this sewing kit for my 6-year old granddaughter. She was very excited as I was. The first time she threaded the needle using the needle threader, the needle threader broke. As with all the sewing supplies in this kit, such as the scissors and thimble, it was cheaply made.

But my worst complaint concerns the directions. Completely useless. We are trying to make what is called 'Book Cover'. There are two written steps that make no sense, and the pictures shown don't help much either. Plus the cryptic directions are in 4 different languages; what looks like what might be a lot of useful directions are really a couple sentences repeated in 4 languages.

This kit is frustrating for my granddaughter as well as me, and I am an experience seamstress.

I started writing a horrible review and then decided to try and find another needle. Trying to get the supplied needle and thread through the felt is VERY hard. So hard in fact, the eye of the needle broke in two. I struggled threading the needle, much less a 7-10 year old. I found a larger diameter needle with a larger eye. Easier to thread and it makes a bigger hole as it goes through the felt - therefore making the thread follow much easier. Don't bother using the kit with the supplied needle - get a bigger one and the kit works.

Lovely!!! My six-year old could probably do this by herself to some degree, but it is certainly easier to have an adult helper. It is really cute, and has some really cute projects. I wasn't sure what to expect (didn't look too carefully,) but it does include metal needles instead of plastic, so just be prepared. That wasn't an issue at all, we just had a more in-depth discussion about proper needle care, and the desire to NOT have them laying around to impale feet! The case is not perfect, a little flimsy, but still wonderful, and I suspect it will last for years!
