Sew Fast Sew Easy : All You Need to Know When You Start to Sew
Sew Fast Sew Easy : All You Need to Know When You Start to Sew
Great for beginners to learn to sew. This book assumes you know nothing about using a sewing machine or fabric or patterns. It gently walks you through 3 patterns (included), which I love as a way to learn sewing.
The Complete Book of Sewing: A Practical Step-By-Step Guide to Every Technique
The Complete Book of Sewing: A Practical Step-By-Step Guide to Every Technique
Excellent reference guide with good illustrations and photos. This is the kind of book to keep by your sewing machine. Great for when you are stumped on a sewing technique.
My Little House Sewing Book: 8 Projects from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Classic Stories My Little House Sewing Book: 8 Projects from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Classic Stories
Fun way to start sewing. Sew patterns for items that Laura Ingalls Wilder used!
My First Machine Sewing Book My First Machine Sewing Book
Written for ages 7-11, but will keep the attention of kids older with the fun ideas and games. Good directions so they can learn on their own, too.
Lace a Puppet
Lace-a-Puppet
Simple lacing with plastic needle makes felt puppets, then glue faces and more to decorate. Fun to make, fun to play with!
Kwik Sew's Sewing for Baby Kwik Sew's Sewing for Baby
Highly recommended sewing for baby book. Includes patterns and lots of ways to make different baby clothing in different sizes, too.
The Complete Serger Handbook The Complete Serger Handbook
My favorite serger book. This book has a great section that shows color photos of wrong stitches so you can compare your sample. Then it tells you how to fix it.
