Trixi Symonds from Coloured Buttons has a new eBook version of her Sew Together Grow Together book out via Amazon. Trixi is teacher and author with more than two decades of experience designing sewing projects for children and teaching kids how to create and sew their own softies, cushions, bags, games, monsters and toys. (She shared her Monster Twins project here at Sew Mama Sew.)

Sew Together Grow Together is an original sewing book for kids featuring 20 easy-to-make sewing projects developed and road-tested with children ages five to twelve. These projects are fun, creative and educational activities that teach kids the basic techniques of how to sew. Through simple and clear sewing tutorials, you and your children can learn how to make softies and toys as well as cushions, bags and familiar kid’s games. Each of the hand sewing projects guides adults and children to work together, and all of the projects are suitable for adults or older with no sewing machine and no previous sewing experience.

To celebrate the eBook release of Sew Together Grow Together on Amazon, Trixi is giving you a free PDF Tic Tac Toe Pouch Pattern + Tutorial. This example with the pink and springtime flowers might be a bit more appealing to girls; Trixi also has an alternate example at Coloured Buttons that works for everyone.

The eBook version of Sew Together Grow Together can be purchased at a special launch price of $5 (reduced from $9.95) for one week. The title is also available in hard copy! Download your free PDF Tic Tac Toe Pouch Pattern + Tutorial for a better look at Trixi’s clear instructions and patterns, and plan some kid sewing projects now for those lazy summer vacation days.
