Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Tina Davis publishedLook and Cook, she got thousands of kids in front of the stove and hooked on cooking as they enjoyed the results of their newfound skills. With this wonderful new companion book, she'll move kids from the kitchen to the living room, where they'll have just as much fun learning to sew everything from a strawberry pot holder to a drawstring bag, from a sock doll to a cat purse they can pin to their pockets.

See and Sew is a vibrant introduction to sewing that doesn't require a sewing machine or advanced skills. Full of charm and color, it offers simple instructions for basic stitches and techniques as well as easy step-by-step directions for 16 fun and kid-friendly projects. It also offers all-important safety guidelines. Designed with beautiful vintage illustrations throughout, the book is as pleasantly nostalgic for the adult in charge as it is engaging for the child at work. In no time at all kids will be exclaiming, "I made it myself!"

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1969, this adorable book teaches kids to sew alongside the jolly Miss Patch. With its sweet retro look and easy step-by-step instructions, it will appeal to kids and adults alike.
