I have been teaching my niece to sew with this book. I felt before we got on any machine, we needed to go through the basics first. We have really enjoyed making each project. We are over half way through with the projects. Each project has a rating of 1, 2 or 3, so we completed all the one star projects and have almost completed the two star projects. The nice thing about this as well is it gives us an opportunity to turn off the electronics and chat while we are working. The projects really do appeal to school children. I would say you would definitely have to modify some if you were teaching a boy, but for girls it is great. Also, each project takes about 1 to 2 hours from start to finish.

It is an excellent book on sewing projects. Very simple and easy, even a grade 4 child can do it with a little help from parents or teacher.
