I'll be teaching my niece how to sew and we'll be working on a project together for about a month. I want to leave her a book of small projects so that she can carry on without me, that would be interesting to a teenager.

I'm thinking small easy projects to build her confidence.

TIA

Hi Loti,

Have you taken a look at Sew Everything Workshop by Diana Rupp? It covers a lot (in a good way - I don't mean "a lot" as in too much), but is fun and has lots of confidence building projects - ranging from a pin cushion (super easy) to a dress (still simple and easy).

Here is the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Sew-Everything-Workshop-Step-Step/dp/0761139737

Have fun!

I hadn't seen this book, I'll have to see if any local bookstores carry it. Building confidence is a biggie, I want her to enjoy the experience, and not get too frustrated. Thanks for suggestion.
