Stitch Camp - 18 ausgetüftelte Projekte für Kids + Teens

Die 6 beliebtesten Handarbeitstechniken aller Zeiten (nähen, stricken, häkeln, filzen, sticken, weben)

In diesem Buch geht es vor allem um Fasern. Garn, Schnur, Faden und Stoff - und die vielen verschiedenen Dinge, die man damit machen kann, wie zum Beispiel nähen, sticken, filzen, stricken, häkeln und weben. Kinder werden dazu angeregt Projekte für sich oder Geschenke für andere mit ihren eigenen Händen herzustellen. Dabei sollen sie ruhig ihren eigenen Weg finden, die Dinge anzupacken. Hier geht es nicht darum, die Anleitungen zu den einzelnen Projekten sklavisch zu befolgen, sondern die eigene Kreativität walten zu lassen. In 18 spannenden Projekten von gewebten Freundschaftsbändern, genähten Schlüsselanhängern bis hin zu gehäkelten Stiftrollen, werden die beliebtesten Handarbeitsfähigkeiten einfach aber detailliert erklärt. Eine der schönsten Aussagen von »Stitch Camp« ist aber: »Keine Scheu vor Fehlern! Selbst die besten machen immer noch Fehler, und dass sie so gut wurden, wie sie sind, liegt daran, dass sie aus ihren Fehlern gelernt haben.«
