Time for one last peek at The Lucky Sew-it-yourself Book by Camille Sokol, with pictures by Bill Sokol. This out-of-print charmer from 1964 is useful for teaching children basic sewing skills.
A couple of months ago, I sold this vintage book in my Etsy shop and it went off to Paris, France. (Lucky book!) But before I sent it out, I made sure to scan a couple more projects to share with you. The first one is for an apron.
And here are instructions for making a pin cushion or doll pillow.
This last spread encourages the new sewer to create a sewing box.
If you'd like more views of this book, you can visit a couple of my previous posts. Click here for spreads which guide you through the materials you'll need, sewing hints, and instructions for basic skills. To view a simple scarf project, click here. I hope you'll share these projects with your kids, grandchildren, or any youngster who wants to learn how to sew.
The very last page of The Lucky Sew-it-yourself Book has the sweetest drawing of the author, artist, and their daughters Kathy and Randy. It has been 46 years since this book was published. I wonder if Kathy and Randy have shared their parent's charming book with their own children and taught them to sew, too.
