We Love to Sew Gifts Book Review

If you know a child who wants to learn how to sew, or even an adult, I highly recommend you check out this book, We Love to Sew Gifts – Fun Stuff for Kids to Stitch and Share by Annabel Wrigley. Annabel not only does a great job coming up with projects kids will look forward to making, she does a wonderful job explaining the things you need to know to make sewing a fun and successful experience.

The first 30 pages of this book helps to teach you about the different things you need to know before you start sewing. The first thing you need to know is what what sort of supplies and tools you will want to get your hands on. Not only does this book list out the basic sewing supplies you should get, it also discusses different fabrics and give some great tips for choosing the right fabrics for your projects.

Once you know what supplies you need, you need to get familiar with some terms that are commonly used while sewing. You may also want to take some time yo read about and practice some sewing skills. Covered in All the Skills You Need chapter of this book, you will find instructions for how to successfully sew around corners, how to make and use templates, working with paper-backed fusible web, and much more. You will also learn about different stitches you will use while hand sewing.

Of course, the part of this book everyone will probably like best is the chapters that contain all of the projects! There are 6 different chapters in this book that cover different sort of gifts, and each chapters has a fantastic selection of projects.

Check these out and tell me you don’t agree:

Now, I love sewing, so I might a little biased, but I would recommend this book to anyone who has a child who might be iterested. Not only is sewing a fun way to pass time and a great life skill to learn, when it leaves you with a product that you can give to brighten someone else’s day it is an added bonus!
