It really is a fantastic introduction to machine sewing. I'm a total non-sewer, but have been learning in order to to support my son with his hobby, and I will definitely be working on some of the little projects in this book.
There's a wallet at the back where all the patterns are stored. And they're proper patterns - no photocopying - just cut out and use. There's plenty of space for other patterns too.
The spiral binding means that the book can be laid flat with ease, leaving one less thing for new sewers to be frustrated about.
The projects are all useful accessories or toys, such as a drawstring bag, iPad case, sewing machine cover, hanging pocket storage.
The best thing about this book is that all the images and finished projects are made by children. It's not a book entirely created by adults and merely aimed at children. The projects aren't polished or perfect - they are made by children who look very proud of their work. It's really helpful to have realistic images in such a book, because it can be so disheartening for a child to see that their finished project isn't like the one in the book.
Highly recommended. My son can't wait to get started
