"A charming introduction to the thrill of creating something with fabric and thread . . . Great for aspiring sewists of all ages!" (Gretchen Hirsch, author of Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing)
Sewing is a skill that's both fun and functional, and there's no better way to get started than with jolly Miss Patch! She learns how to thread a needle, cut patterns, and sew a fine seam by hand. With the help of Miss Patch, and the book's many diagrams and amusing drawings, beginning sewists can learn to make a pillow, a bag, a patchwork quilt, an apron, and even simple clothes. Originally published in 1969, this is a timeless introduction to the pleasures of sewing.
"Overall, this book was nicely put together and included an introduction to sewing which was perfect for young girls and boys . . . It was creative and fun to look through." —Sweetly Made (Just for You)
