A Child's Book of Sewing
A Child’s Book of Sewing is a reproduction of an extremely useful and charming mid-century instructional sewing book for children by Jane Chapman. It is filled with illustrations and diagrams (by Walter Chapman and Jeva Cralick) that are not only delightful, but also practical. It includes a handful of simple projects that children eight and up can accomplish with little to no adult supervision, including a bookmark, beanbag and change purse. A Child’s First Sewing Book also includes instructions and diagrams on basic hand stitches, using needles, scissors, thimbles and pins, basic pattern use and more.
First printed in 1951
We love that this book is spiral bound so it can lay open while in use!
