This exciting new title from the editor of Making Jewellery magazine is the ideal introduction to hand sewing for children from the ages of 8 and up. Most of the projects will use felt as the base material because it comes in a wide range of colors, is easy to cut and doesn't fray; it can also be sewn using big needles that don't have to be razor sharp! Felt also has the advantage of being cheap and widely available. The book will contain a tools and materials section as well as a section on techniques which will include: running, back, and blanket stitch. Other techniques will be covered in projects throughout the book. The book will contain twenty projects, many of which will appeal to boys as well as girls.

Projects include: Tic tac toe with felt pocket, finger puppets, headband, pencil case, book cover, cushion, drawstring bag, wall hanging, mobile.
