About the Author:

Annabel Wrigley is an Aussie mom and owner of Little Pincushion Studio
Classroom where she teaches young girls everything they need to know to
conquer the world of sewing. Her blog
chronicles her crafty ventures. She lives in Warrenton, Virginia with
her husband, two kids, and one very loud pug.


My Thoughts:

This book is designed for crafty girls that want simple, beginner sewing
projects. It’s perfect for ages 9 and up. Your daughter needs to have
access to basic sewing supplies and know how to use a sewing machine in
order to complete the projects in this book.

There are a lot of simple projects in this book that will appeal to
girls. Some of my favorites are the accessories like the t-shirt
embellishments, the hand bag, and headbands. I also like the jewelry and
simple skirt tutorial.

The book includes a section at the beginning about the basics of sewing
and needed supplies. Each project is explained in simple terms and is
illustrated with photographs. The projects themselves are fun and
creative and are great for girls just learning to sew. Some of these
projects would be a lot of fun to do with a small group of girls, like
at a party.  As is normal with these types of books, some projects are
more appealing than others.
