Some very simple craft projects for children which look really good. Easy ideas that you can adapt yourself. Includes decorations for the tree (stars, penguins, snowmen) and walls (reindeer collage, line of stockings), cards and gift tags to make. Also includes very clear simple instructions on the basic stitches you will need including how to sew a button and a sequin (used as a decorative feature in a few projects).

I haven't made any of the projects but will use it as inspiration to try my own

Simple easy colourful things to sew for Christmas. The emphasis is on decorations but projects include hand sewn Christmas cards, gift bags and gift tags. Very clear instructions suitable for children. The projects even recommend you glue some of the pieces together for a quick effective design. There's also a great introduction to various stitches at the back. All you need is cotton fabric, felt, glue, scissors, buttons and thread to get creating.

Great book to use with the kids. It was very helpful when I was planning my annual crafty Christmas. This is when all the kids in the family come to stay over for a full two days of crafting gifts, decorations and edible goodies for Christmas. The colour pictures are great. The only drawback is the lack of templates. You do have to spend some time creating your own based on the books guidelines.
