This book is designed for crafty girls that want simple, beginner sewing projects. It's perfect for ages 9 and up. Your daughter needs to have access to basic sewing supplies and know how to use a sewing machine in order to complete the projects in this book. There are a lot of simple projects in this book that will appeal to girls. Some of my favorites are the accessories like the t-shirt embellishments, the hand bag, and headbands. I also like the jewelry and simple skirt tutorial. The book includes a section at the beginning about the basics of sewing and needed supplies. Each project is explained in simple terms and is illustrated with photographs. The projects themselves are fun and creative and are great for girls just learning to sew. Some of these projects would be a lot of fun to do with a small group of girls, like at a party. As is normal with these types of books, some projects are more appealing than others.
