A Sewing Book Review by Ella (11 years old)

Sewing School, 21 Sewing Projects Kids Will Love to Make, by Amie Petronis Plumley and Andria Lisle 

Ella loves making things. When the Sewing School book arrived at Morris and Sons we knew exactly whom we would be roping in to do a book review for us. Ella spent the day with her Aunty Jan and made the eye glasses case on page 90. Don’t look past Ella’s beautiful scarf, her Aunty Jan made for her out of Noro Taiyo yarn.

In Ella’s words:

“It all started on a cold morning at my holiday house in Queenscliff. On this particular morning I decided it was time to make the eye-see-you glasses case. I got out the felt, needles, thread, scissors and this book. And it was then that I realised my needle was too blunt, so, I sent my Mum out to get more. But in actual fact when she got back I was almost done.

Every 5-10 minutes we took photos of me moving forward, through the steps. In the photos you will see it’s similar to those in the book. You will have so much fun making this cool case for an awesome present or to keep for your own.”

Ella Book Review 9

Well done Ella. It looks very awesome

The glasses case took Ella 2.5 hours to complete. She has also let us know that she is going to be making the skirt on page 110. We are looking forward to seeing images of her sporting her new skirt.

The book and all the accoutrements to make the above projects and many more are available in all our stores.

It was a delight to work with Ella and her Aunty Jan and Ella’s Mum. Thank you for doing the review for us Ella. Much appreciated. We hope that this will fire up other girls your age to get into sewing.
