The authors, Amie and Andria, teach a Sewing School day Camp each summer, and had the kids test all of these projects. If you'd like to find out more about the authors, visit the Sewing School blog at http://sewingschool.blogspot.com/.
The book starts off with an introduction for the adults, then a welcome for the kids. Following that, there are twelve lessons for the kids that will teach them how to use the book, how to choose a machine, what you should have in your sewing kit, etc. Lesson Thirteen is a "pop quiz" of three simple projects that will test what the kids learned from the first twelve lessons. After that, it's time for the projects!
There are 20 projects in all, and they are divided into four different categories - In My Room, Let's Go, Time To Play, and The Great Outdoors. The projects are rated by difficulty. We especially love the stuffed guitar in the Time To Play section!
The book itself has a covered spiral binding, which means it lays flat when it opens - very handy when you're trying to follow along on a project. It also has patterns inside the back cover for all the projects that need one. Overall, we give this book a "two thimbles up"!
