It IS time for lessons, to teach her properly. For that we will loosely follow these books, yes my 8 yr old ds likes to sew too. He is tickled pink about the projects in the boys book! I bought these from America a couple of years ago and they are fabulous. They give clear instructions that are easy to follow and the projects build up in skill level throughout the books. There are other books in the series, a more begining one and two more advanced ones. Bunkhouse Sewing puts them out. I would love to hear about your experiences teaching children to sew or your own experience of learning.
