My First Sewing Machine Book: 35 Fun and Easy Projects for Children Aged 7 Years+ - Emma Hardy

Learn how to use a sewing machine while making fantastic projects! With 35 projects that you'll love to make and a helpful techniques section, this book will teach you all about sewing machines, from how to thread them and use them safely to all the different stitch settings. Start out with Awesome Accessories and Clothes, where you can make a ribbon bow collar and cosy scarf, as well as an elasticated skirt. Then try one of the Brilliant Bags, such as a cute zipped purse, an iPod case and even a canvas beach bag to take on holiday with you. Transform your room with the Beautiful Bedroom projects - the wall tidy looks great and gives you somewhere to store all your bits and pieces, and you can brighten up your bedding with a patchwork quilt. Finally, why not have a go at the Fantastic Toys? Make a rag doll, and then clothes for it, too, to get a feel for dressmaking, or create a fabric chequerboard for playing draughts and chess. Every project has step-by-step artworks to guide you, plus a skill level so you can start with easy items and move on to more challenging things as you get better at using a machine.
