This collection of 18 skill-building projects teaches children with no sewing experience how to sew their very own cuddly pals.

Multiple examples of each project encourage them to explore ideas. Featuring shapes, critters, and monsters that appeal to kids’ imagination, the projects build on skills and develop creativity. “Written for children by Wendi and her daughter Jo . . . a book of sewing basics focusing on creating fun stuffed creatures, and it’s suitable for new or experienced sewists ages 9 and up. It’s kid-tested and approved, because all of the sewing was done by 11-year-old Jo and her friends . . . With Christmas coming, I can’t think of a more perfect book for kids and grown-ups alike. There is just so much cuteness that needs to be stitched and gifted!”—Wild Olive BlogShow book
