    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good sewing resource for an 8yo girl.  She already makes up her own little projects with scraps of material and thread in her free time.  I would like to continue encouraging this and help her learn better technique as well.  Any suggestions?


    SCM has a hand-sewing handicraft DVD with instructions and projects.  I think it is worth checking out.  You can find it in their store.


    If you have read or plan to read the Little House series there are 2 books you may want to look into. My Little House Sewing Book and My Little House Crafts Book (which I believe has a few other sewing projects). Both might be at your local Library if you wanted to look before buying. They have used copies for cheap on. Amazon.


    Here is a link to a book I bought for my daughter. We haven’t used it too much yet, but it has some nice projects in it, and it comes with patterns. There is even a pattern for a simple skirt. Instructions are written at a second grade reading level.


    My kids have enjoyed this book:

    I got this for DD on her 8th birthday and it came out really cute!

    I’ve found my DC like sewing with felt and embroidery floss the most since there is no hemming.


    Wow, these all look like really great suggestions.  I actually have the Little House Craft Book, and didn’t even think about that. Thank you all so much! I’m looking forward to doing some of these things with my daughter.
