Welcome to Sewing School
Sewing School has been a long time coming - at least 3 years since the idea entered our heads and 1 1/2 years in production. As Andria and I searched for cute, modern patterns to use in our Sewing School camp, we became frustrated. There just wasn't anything we loved out there. Everything seemed too baby or required too much adult help. Slowly, we began to develop our own patterns and found tools and techniques that worked with kids. This became Sewing School. We wanted a book that was kid-friendly but also looked liked the adult sewing books we love. Justin's photos and Storey's design made this a reality.
So, let's have a look!
The projects are rated by stars from easy to more difficult, so you can judge your level. We don't tell kids what colors to use or how to embellish - that's up to them. Andria and I want to see kids use sewing as a creative outlet.
Next week, I'll share some more from the book such as our favorite projects and a little about the kids in the book. If you want to see more, Amazon now has the Look Inside feature for Sewing School - woo hoo!
