Grade 3-5-The tools and techniques to create a round pillow, beanbag cat, and stuffed doll are clearly illustrated and explained in this full-color craft book. Simple patterns are well designed for tracing onto paper; the pattern for the pillow calls for tracing the outline of a large, upside-down bowl. Informative drawings and easy-to-follow instructions lead to quality finished products. The projects offer challenges to beginners without overwhelming them. Those who can read the directions, gather the supplies, and work carefully can complete them on their own. A fun way for children to experience success if a helpful adult is not available, and a useful way for them to develop the skills to make their own gifts and toys.

Ages 5-8. Like a recipe for success, Hoffman identifies all the necessary equipment, describes the rudimentary skills, then outlines the step-by-step procedures for creating three simple but engaging sewing projects. Barton's life-size and brightly colored illustrations depict the tools and the steps, from threading the needle through the completed crafts. Text and art work together to provide lucid directions to young stitchers on how to fashion a circle pillow, a beanbag cat, and a flower girl doll, each project building on the procedures mastered in the one before. An older adviser--not necessarily an accomplished sewer--is all children will need, along with this book, to have some productive sewing fun. Ellen Mandel
