=Galt First Sewing=
I purchased this set last summer from a market stall and paid £1 per box, I brought 2 boxes so that when my daughter had one of her friends over for the night, we had something they could do.
The age is recommended for 5 plus, but as my daughter and her friend don't really do sewing this kit was great for them to do, and they both had identitial items.
The set contains five projects, there are mini size.
All the foam used is bright colours, from purple, pinks, yellows, and there are embellishments to sew on to some of the projects such as butterflies, hearts and flowers.
Each project is in a separate bag and has al the necessary components,, so there no mix up of parts, or root around and try and guess what goes with what and also you can split them up so they don't all get used at once.
This has lengths of cords instead of cotton to sew with and comes with plastic needles, as well as stick on gems to finish off the products.
On average it took the kids about 10 to 20 minutes per item to make.
There is a guide sheet for the parts, which is more pictures, this is basic, but the kids could look at it themselves and work things out, although once you see the projects you know what goes where.
=Now to the Projects=
1. Notebook Holder
This is a small notebook holder, but included in the set comes two mini pencils which add an extra dimension to the project.
2. A Photo frame
What I would say with this, is have a picture ready it makes the job easier,
3. A Neck purse
The kids loved this, even though I thought it would be the less favourable one as it is aimed more for the younger market.
4. Small Bag
Looks fun and funky when finished.
5. A small heart shaped bag
This like the others was bright and cheerful.
The children don't need any skills for these, and it gives them the independance, that they created something themselves.
This can be purchased from Amazon, and there are similar kits around by other brands of similar items,
This was a great set, not just the cost, but everything was all organised, and ready to get set and go, it gave the kids fun ideas, and we spread them out over a couple of days over the holidays.
Summary: There great for kids to learn the first sewing skills with
