Finger puppets and headbands are just two of the 20 adorable projects contained in Now I Can Sew by Sian Hamilton, an easy-to-follow introduction to hand sewing for both boys and girls ages 8 and up.

250 colorful photographs throughout the book illustrate step-by-step instructions for sewing with felt—an inexpensive, easy-to-cut material that comes in a wide variety of colors. Another advantage to felt is that it can be worked using big needles that don't have to be sharp.

Kids will quickly learn basic running, back, and blanket stitches, and the book contains sections on tools, materials, and techniques. First-timers will be able to create:

  • tic tac toe 'game' with pocket
  • pencil cases
  • book covers
  • cushions
  • drawstring bag
  • wall hangings
  • mobiles
