I purchased several of the following sewing books for kids when I was creating a sewing kit for my daughter at Christmas. I looked through the projects in the books to figure the initial supplies to put into the sewing kit. Other books I have added since. I love all these books. They have wonderful and fun ideas!
The Cute Book and The Cuter Book have CUTE little stuffed animal creatures for kids to sew. These were the first projects that both my kids and their cousins were drawn to. I think because the animals are small and the books have step-by-step instructions, kids are not intimidated by them at all. They jump right in and start sewing these cute little animals…
Sewing for Children: 35 Step-by-step Projects to Help Kids Aged 3 and Up Learn to Sew is my favorite of these two books – but I love them both! They are filled with real projects that will fascinate your kids.
See and Sew: A Sewing Book for Children covers the very basics of sewing – with a Norman Rockwell feel. There is a very nostalgic look and feel to this book. It includes many basic stitches, sewing on buttons, shanking buttons, making pom poms, etc.
