PLEASE figure out a better option for the patterns. I would have returned the book instantly if I could have anticipated the amount of time it would take to copy and enlarge the patterns let alone the wear on the book by going thru the copy machine so many times. The book measures larger than 8.5" "standard" sheet of paper so I had to copy each page twice to even get all the information. Then it takes much more time to put the copies back on the copier to "enlarge to twice the size."
Now I have many, many sheets for a little girl to weed through to figure out which pattern piece to use. Perhaps you could print them all to proper size, unbound, and offer for an additional price. I certainly would have paid extra to have patterns presented in a usable manner.
These are also projects that a kid will want to do, & are do-able by a kid. Your favorite 10-yr old would just RELISH a week spent with all his/her little friends sitting out in the yard or snugging up near a fire making dolls, hair-things, a super-hero cape, a pillow, etc, etc. With a little more supervision & help, a 3 or 4 yr old could definitely do a few of these projects, but I would really reccomend that the child be able to at least read a small amount, & be trust-worthy with a needle, as they will gain the most from it in this more self-teaching way.
All in all, this really is a stellar book for children learning to sew!
There are not many projects suitable for the 3-7 range, and NOTHING very very simple for a young absolute beginner.
I do like this book, i do like the projects, but i wish that i had bought the winky cherry books
