This audiobook is excellent if you're new to the sewing machine, I've bought a few books but personally, this is the best, so easy to understand with easy to follow, I'm dyslexic but this audiobook helped me a lot.

The projects are really cute.

The projects are really cute. Most projects use a whip stitch. I bought it thinking it would be for a sewing machine and was disappointed that it is only hand sewing projects. And most projects not adjustable to a sewing machine. Like an animal shape pillow, that would be hard for a beginner to sew with the machine. I wish they explain this in the description.

My granddaughter just loved this book!

My granddaughter just loved this audiobook! I hope it will start her on a life of sewing enjoyment. I appreciated the supply list in the front. I was able to buy her all that to accompany the audiobook so she had everything she needed to start her first project.

This is a great beginning audiobook

This is a great beginning audiobook for children learning to sew. I like that this, though does have a bunch of girly stuff, does have options for boys too because girls are not the only ones that want to learn how! I helped my kids through some projects in this audiobook and even bought it as a gift for a relative. I would recommend it to anyone learning to sew, It had a lot of great info explained in an easy to understand way.

Great audiobook

I have been looking for some simple hand-stitch patterns to use with my after school program kids. After a lot of searching, I finally broke down and bought this audiobook. I should've done this earlier!

It is great!

Although we haven't done any of the projects just yet, having listened through this audiobook I think it is great! So well made and thought out and the projects listen basic enough to understand but with the ability to put your own style into them!
