My book, that's what!!!!!!! Yes, September 8th sees the publication of Get Into: Sewing by Jane Marland!!!! Get Into: Sewing is the first in a series of creative craft titles by Wayland Books designed to get kids interested in popular hobbies. The eleven projects in my book use simple hand sewing techniques and are fun, colourful and easy-to-follow.
The book is aimed at 8-11 year olds and the projects are suitable for a range of abilities. Here's the complete Contents list.
I've included some absolute beginner projects such as Lavender Bags and simple Felt Flowers….
There are a few projects that are a bit more involved, such as brightly coloured Bunting…
… and a smart Pencil Roll…
The shirt cushion project is a very simplified version of one of the tutorials on my blog, especially adapted for hand sewing. Once the front and back are cut out all that's required is some neat backstitching!
And my favourite project in the book is probably the Juggling Ball - fun to make and such a cool present!
I'm slightly biased, but I think it's a great introduction to sewing for children! And if you know of any little people who might enjoy it (or even big people!) it's available from Amazon as of today at £12.99! I've been told it's also being published in Australia around the same time and am awaiting details of availability in the US and Canada. I'll add an update to this post as soon as I know.
Have a great day! x
