Many young children want to learn how to sew, an activity that can be fraught with difficulties because it requires the use of sharp needles and scissors. With this kit, young children can enjoy the process of sewing without having to worry about tying knots and punctured fingertips. Everything children need to make the projects described in the included book can be found in the kit. There is thread, a blunt plastic needle, fabric, felt cutouts, and cord stoppers.

Using the materials provided in the kit, children can begin their sewing adventures by making a bracelet. Then they can make a purse, a stuffed bird, and a door tag. With easy to follow directions and excellent illustrations, this is a kit little children will love to receive as a gift.
