    I teach very young children to sew, 10 years and under, this book will not work without one on one help from me. Some of the projects, like the Springtime Bunnies embroidery project, is way too advanced. Looking through the book I did not see anything that I thought the kids would be super excited to make, but I have not let them look at it yet…hopefully they find something that they would like to tackle. For me, I liked the first few pages of the book. It’s all review, tips, what basic supplies are needed and why, and then sewing machine basics…good reminder for me to always review these things when teaching the young.

    This book is how to sew FOR children, not WITH children. Although the layout is meant to appeal to the younger set, the instructions are written for a three to four spool sewer. I have made three projects with my child and they have been close to disasters. 1) the pentagon patchwork ball requires approx. 15 hours of tedious hand stitching. For the end result, it was not worth it. 2) Sylky the sewing mate was a super-cute idea that included basically no instructions. Ex. “Attach a popper.” How? “Use overstitches.” What the heck is an overstitch? No pictures of the three hand stitches they recommend. 3) Hippie Handbag- it requires sewing on a curve, an advanced skill. Children need to sew on straight lines. Then, the lining is attached with hand stitches. There is a method of making a reasonably professional bag with a lining and attaching handles that does not require hand stitching and tacking on a handle. The book’s instructions mean this bag is not seriously meant to be used, as the handles will pop right off. I am an advanced sewer and we managed to trick each project so the result was fine, but you will not get any insight from this book. If you want your child to learn to sew, and aim to sew alone, get The Best of Sewing Machine Fun for Kids.

    Maybe this would be excellent for a much younger child, January 18, 2016

    Not what I expected, plan on teaching on eight year old. Saw nothing in it that would appeal to her, I was looking for simple totes, purses, and clothing. Maybe this would be excellent for a much younger child.
