"Ishida (Sewing Happiness), a children’s book and crafting guide author, provides a slew of child-friendly projects as adorable as they are functional. A chapter on sewing and embroidering basics should get readers up to speed before they begin the projects, which are divided among décor, toys, and 'wearables,' with the last section being the stand-out [...] These sweet DIY projects will appeal to parents who are also avid or aspiring sewers, not to mention to their kids."
—Publishers Weekly
