34 For Kids: My First Sewing Book--Hand Sewing

by Winky Cherry. (list price $8.50)
[carolyn@bucket.rain.com (Carolyn Peterson)]

This book is written for the 5-11 year old child. The projects in it are made
of 2 identical pieces of felt, which are whip stitched most of the way around
the edges, stuffed and whip stitched shut. The projects are very appropriate
for that age group.

What I didn't like about the book: The sewing supply list includes thread
snippers--it took a while to convince my 5 year old daughter that it was ok to
use scissors to cut the thread. The recommended needles and thread were a
nuisance to locate--finally just used regular thread and needles I had on
hand. I didn't care for the instructions for knotting thread and finishing
up. The book is written in an awkward rhyme.

I am usually a big fan of Palmer/Pletsch books, but was disappointed
with this one. It is the only one I have found that is geared toward a
student that young, though.
