Sewing School 2

Welcome to the last stop Sewing School 2's blog tour! With all the child sewing I've been doing this summer, I've been so thrilled to have a new resource for inspiration and guidance. Just like Amie and Andria's first book, Sewing School, their latest work is a fantastic guide for helping children become independent sewers... but this time with machines! There are 20 projects that totally appeal to the younger set... believe me, I know. I've had two separate crews that all give it a huge thumbs up. The instructions are accessible and inviting and the emphasis is on creating, not perfection. I love this! There is time enough ahead of this young makers to stitch perfectly straight seams... I believe the focus in the beginning should be on safety and fun. I can't recommend this book more highly!! And I did... right on the back cover!
Yesterday we took a fabulous field trip to Sew Green for supplies, and today we will begin making these backpacks... well, after a couple girls finish their doll's sleeping bags. I have some busy girls!

The first day, one of my returning campers practiced the feather stitch by making a version of Sewing School 2's pocket wall. She made her own mini version... for her doll of course!
