I recently downloaded Sew Together Grow Together by Trixi Symonds from her Etsy Shop after connecting with Trixi on Instagram. It is really great how images can connect people from across the world.
Trixi has a great website Coloured Buttons , full of tutorials from her children’s sewing and craft classes. It is a great resource for anyone looking for ideas.
The book is just packed with sewing patterns, tutorials, techniques and detailed guides to stitches. The ebook breaks down into four main sewing chapters, Fun Familes, Cozy Corners, Take Me with You and Friends Forever.
As Trixi explains, “Sew Together Grow Together is a selection of hand-sewing projects developed over two decades in classes and workshops for children. The idea for this book was planted by parents who “can’t even sew on a button” but wished they could play a more active role in their child’s hand-sewing adventures and feel for themselves the excitement their children so clearly felt when they created something they loved and were proud to have made.”
It really is packed with great ideas and projects for parents to work on with their children. I just had to give one of them a go, so I chose Baby in a Pouch, the pattern was easy to print out with step by step instructions clearly showing how to make the project from beginning to end.
