We are a crafting family. I believe crafting gives children a life-long appreciation for arts and also helps tremendously with creativity and hand-eye coordination. Fun with Stitchables is a fantastic new book by Suzy Altman that brings cross-stitch to kids from ages 5-10.
Fun with Stitchables introduces young crafters to the fun of simple embroidery. Quick and easy cross-stitch sewing cards are included with punched holes for easy stitching, as well as a 16-page project book with instructions for designing your own unique stitching patterns and color combinations. A project gallery shows examples of what the hand-stitched cards can become once they are complete: everything from ornaments to greeting cards! The simple stitching patterns taught in this book promote growth and development, hand-eye coordination, as well as creativity and imagination. Fun with Stitchables will entertain and delight crafters of all ages and inspire a lifelong love of embroidery.
This is a great gift for little crafters and so fun! My daughter and I both love the colorful illustrations and ease of learning embroidery. The directions are simple and the materials are easy to find. What a great way to learn and have fun.
