Projects 6 and 7 from The Amazing Stitching Handbook for Kids

Any new stitcher needs a pincushion to store their needles and pins. This sweet little pincushion is made of felt from A Child's Dream. I wrote the word Sew and added some stars. Sweet project that will become a keepsake. 

The next project is one that goes with the current trend of framing embroidery in embroidery hoops. For this project, the dots are printed with fabric paint. Then the outlines are stitched in fun colors. It's quite nice to get kids thinking about cross-crafting like this. 

Check out the new book on my website here. Books begin shipping after August 5th. I'll be happy to sign them for anyone you like. $16.95 plus $4.00 shipping.
