Off we go sowing
and Imogen is sewing these
Concentrating on sewing
(and not pricking herself on the needle or pins!)
Using her lovely sewing box I put together for her for Christmas, the box was bought and then filled with goodies - needles, cottons, embroidery threads, fabric pieces ... and she loves it.
It was accompanied by a fantastic book for children that I got for her - this one
"Knit It, Stitch It" by Jane Bull - on a great offer price at the Book People still at the moment, I bought it with a discount and free postage so a great bargain. This book is fantastic - it goes through knitting, sewing, embroidery, basic weaving and other craft/fabric fun. It is clear in showing different steps, different sewing stitches, etc and has many projects and ideas.
A fantastic book for children interested in sewing and knitting, would highly recommend it. Imogen loves it and wants to make everything. So far she has made herself a little beanie bag toy inspired by this and has started sewing a little bunny now too - but it's not finished yet.
