My First Machine Sewing Book With Kit – Children’s Sewing


My First Machine Sewing Book — Straight Stitching

Second Edition by Winky Cherry

With a clear understanding of the concepts of sewing, and the skills developed through hand sewing and embroidery, children are now introduced to the sewing machine on an elementary level, substituting pictures for words, for repetition, and to help children who are learning to read. Silly names for machine parts help children remember.

The book is part of a kit that includes:
▪ Sewing practice sheets
▪ Fabric for two stars

This book and kit is the fourth in the My First Sewing Book series, and the first machine sewing book.



This fourth book in the My First Sewing Book series introduces machine sewing to children who have already mastered hand sewing. Children learn the parts of a sewing machine, then use practice papers to learn to stitch on straight and curved lines, turn corners, make big and little stitches, make lock stitches, and stitch a curved-line shape. Moving to fabric, they machine-sew and stuff a fabric star. Additional fabric shapes to enlarge and trace are included on the final page.

Children will learn about:
▪ Seam allowances
▪ Stitching right sides together
▪ Tapering
▪ Snips
▪ Clips
▪ Turning the shape right side out

Winky Cherry’s unique My First Sewing Book program teaches young children not only sewing skills, but life skills: responsibility, commitment, focus, patience, coordination, organization, and how to follow rules, all through the enjoyment of sewing. In six books, levels progress from simple hand sewing, embroidery, and doll making, to machine sewing, patchwork, and quilting. The three hand sewing books feature clever rhyming instructions for children as young as 5. The three machine sewing books are for children ages 7 and older. All six titles have simple, clearly-illustrated instructions. Each book builds on the previous books, and each book can stand alone.

For children ages 7 and up.
