Finally, a simple machine sewing book for kids with great instructions! Sewing School 2 is an addition to the previous hand sewing book. However, you don't have to have hand sewing skills to enjoy this title.
This book contains tips on choosing a machine, fabric, patterns, stitches and more. It even has a chapter on hand sewing and fixing mistakes.

Each project is rated with stars which I really like.
One star- Basic and only takes about an hour
Two stars- Skill building and may take a few days to complete
Three stars- Harder projects with more steps

These ratings help the reader to determine if this is a "just right" project for them. Each project also contains messages to parents and helpful tips to the reader. Another plus is that the book doesn't encourage perfection and encourages free expression. There are also fun pictures of children sewing the projects and using them in real life. This is way better than the kids books with adult hands doing all of the work.

Overall a 5 star book on sewing for kids. I would recommend it for ages 8 and up, although younger kids could try with parental guidance. There are enough projects to keep even the busiest seamstress going and difficult enough patterns to challenge tweens and teens. I highly recommend this for school and public libraries. This is going on my list for our library! ( )
