THE MARY FRANCES SEWING BOOK – Adventures Among the Thimble People (PDF ebook)
She's BACK! One of the most beloved & popular children's book characters from the early 1900s returns in another CLASSIC story. And while all the Mary Frances books are excellent, many folks say this sewing book is the best of the bunch!
In this part "fairy tale" and part "instruction book" various sewing implements come to life for Mary Frances, and they teach her how to sew – beginning with outfitting a sewing basket, then learning 10 or so basic stitches, then progressing to a sampler, and then on to doll clothes. The wonderful illustrations sprinkled throughout the book are very reminiscent of the L. Frank Baum Oz series.
This fun book can be enjoyed just as a delightful fairy story, or you can use it as the basis of a hand-sewing curriculum. Don't miss it!
