Reviewing "Let's Sew Together"

"Let's Sew Together" by Rubyellen Bratcher is an adorable book full of fun sewing projects that parents and kids can make together. Filled with a great assortment of projects, Bratcher's step by step instructions, colorful pictures and special attention to detail will enamor any sewing and crafting enthusiast. Each chapter is based on a particular part of a typical family's day. Getting dressed, eating, learning, playing and celebrating are all things we are all quite accustomed to. Bratcher took these familiar and routine aspects of daily life and provided the readers with a wonderful assortment of crafts, recipes and even theme specific books to read with your kids if they don't feel like participating in a particular sewing project.  Each chapter also has a no-sew project made from things that you can probably find around the house.
Each project lists a summary, skill level, materials, seam allowance and finished measurements along with tips to make the project extra special.   The directions are very clear and even include photos and drawings when needed.  I really love that the author included book lists with the projects.  It makes it very home school friendly if a parent is trying to plan a day around a certain theme.
I would definitely recommend this book to any family who enjoys making kid friendly projects together, or to any crafters out there who like to make fun gifts for kids.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
