Book Description

Learn how to sew 25 vibrant projects for children, from a baby bib and romper suit to a mini messenger bag and a three-tiered drawstring skirt.

With their bold colours and striking patterns, African wax print fabrics are ideal for making stunning items for children. Here, Adaku Parker shows you how to sew 25 stylish designs for babies to 5-year-olds, providing her expert tips on using African wax prints. Try your hand at quick and simple projects, from a baby hat to a knot headband and a drawstring bag. To add a personal touch to a child’s bedroom or nursery, choose from homewares such as toy storage boxes, a peg-board organiser and an envelope cushion. There are also gorgeous and practical garments, from elasticated shorts and a shirt for a boy to a girl’s circle skirt and a tiered dress. Easy-to-follow artworks and instructions guide you through skills such as sewing pleats, topstitching, and adding pockets and zips, and the pull-out pattern sheets include a range of different sizes for the garments. Requiring just a sewing machine, a few basic tools and some beautiful African wax print fabric, these projects will inspire you to create unique hand-made projects for children.
