Teach your kids and tweens how to sew, knit, crochet, felt, embroider, and weave with the new book Stitch Camp by Nicole Blum and Catherine Newman. Each technique is broken down by chapter and has a list of materials plus step-by-step instructions with plenty of pictures to guide. Once kids have the basics, they can try fun crafts like a crocheted hacky sack or a knitted Tom hat with a pom-pom. Grab some yarn, and craft away!
Using mostly inexpensive materials and recyclables, this colorful and well-formatted craft book introduces the basic skills of sewing, embroidery, felting, knitting, crocheting, and weaving in a peppy conversational style. Although these techniques have been around for ages, Blum and Newman utilize them in fresh ways...Excellent close-up photos of kids and tweens, girls and boys, augment the well-written directions.
Accessible skill-building over a range of needle-crafts — and the delight with which the authors encourage readers to upcycle, improvise, and break the rules is utterly contagious.
An endlessly joyful and captivating crafty adventure! With a warm and inviting voice, Blum and Newman empower kids to be confident and bold makers. Their projects are attainable, fun, and perfectly imperfect.
