Children are natural do-it-yourselfers, decorating their own rooms, experimenting with arts and crafts, expressing their personalities through all sorts of hands-on activities. Girls' Best Book of Knitting, Sewing, and Embroidery encourages that creativity while teaching kids the fundamentals of three basic handicrafts. Through colorfully illustrated, step-by-step lessons and simple, engaging projects, this charming book introduces girls to the world of knitting, sewing, and embroidery in a fun and accessible format.

All three crafts are explained in clear, easy-to-understand language, accompanied by vibrant color photographs and illustrations that demonstrate the tools and techniques of each trade. The bright, adorable projects that follow-embroidered T-shirts and patches, knitted flowers and butterflies, sewn bags and hair bands-will inspire kids to try out their new skills.

Throughout the pages are special features such as perforated embroidery cards, patterns for tracing, and-best of all-a sturdy, pop-out cardboard doll, ready to be dressed in clothes made by the young designer following instructions in the book. The perfect combination of play and learning, Girls' Best Book of Knitting, Sewing, and Embroidery is sure to make a crafter out of every creative girl.
