Klutz Super Simple Sewing: Easy To Stitch Projects
Super Simple Sewing from Klutz is a neat little set of four sewing activities: purse, bracelet, bird and a door tag. Each project comes with pre-cut fabrics that have nicely sized and well-spaced perforations for super simple sewing! The needle is large, plastic and not sharp (perfect for small hands) and the thread’s got a good weight and thickness for beginners. Snap-together cord-catchers cinch the thread together, so you don’t have to do any complicated knot-tying. The instructions are to the point and well illustrated. You’ll have tons of fun working on these projects – especially once you see that everything you make with the kit fits right inside the little purse. Great for hand and eye co-ordination, plus lots of fun!
