My First Sewing Book With Kit – Teachers Children Sew


My First Sewing Book—Hand Sewing

Second Edition by Winky Cherry

This book provides a fun sewing experience for children as young as 5 years. Read the book aloud (it’s written in rhyme!), then help children follow directions as they sew and stuff one of many shapes from the book.

The book comes as part of a kit, which includes:
▪ Two sets of precut shapes from quality felt
▪ 3 yards each of four colors of crochet thread–enough to create two projects.
▪ 43 patterns for additional projects.

This book and kit is the first in the My First Sewing Book series.



More than sewing...this book teaches the child responsibility, commitment, focus, patience, cleanliness and coordination. Plus children feel the satisfaction of a job well done.

For children ages 5 and up.

The Winky Cherry System of Teaching Children to Sew teaches children sewing plus social and growth skills. Levels progress from hand sewing to embroidery and machine sewing. Author and teacher Winky Cherry believes that children should learn to sew by hand before they learn to use a sewing machine. Hand sewing skills develop finger dexterity and teach the values of patience and practice.

This series of books starts boys and girls as young as five. The six books are packaged as kits with the key materials for a first project and shopping lists for simple sewing supplies. Along with the teaching manual and DVD, they offer a complete, thoroughly tested sewing program for children ages 5 to 11 who will learn patience, manners, creativity, completion, and how to follow rules...all through the enjoyment of sewing. Each book follows a project from start to finish with clever rhymes and clear illustrations. My First Sewing Book is also available as a DVD
