Creative Books I'm Enjoying

In an effort to completely warp Emma, I bought her these two books for her birthday. We both love them. Great projects for kids of any age!














The Stitch-it Kit embroidery book is awesome. It's been on my Amazon wish list for quite awhile but I found it recently at Joann's and after using my 50% off coupon, it was quite a bargain. I haven't bought the Sublime Stitching one yet but I have looked through it and it is next on the list.

  1. My mother purchased a kids cookie baking cookbook for me when I was about 7 & I've been a baker ever since. You are putting her on a fun path!

  4. My girls ages 15, 13, and almost 8 have recently started doing stitchery, and are loving it.

    The Klutz Books have a great stitchery book with iron on patterns.

    I love to watch them learn new things.

  5. Thanks! I've been looking for a good beginners embroidery/stitchery book.
    I love to sew, but have never embroidered. But, I've been inspired to try it by Janet over at Primrose Design. On her blog, she shows different stitches step by step. A book for children would be just my speed. LOL :)
