Book Review + Project Excerpt: Make Stuff Together, by Bernadette Noll and Kathie Sever


Make Stuff Together: 24 Simple Projects to Create as a Family, by Bernadette Noll and Kathie Sever
Book Site: Future Craft Collective
Make Stuff Together is the work of two women who’ve made it their mission to help families create together. Bernadette Noll and Kathie Sever run the Austin, TX-based Future Craft Collective, which offers craft camps and classes for kids, along with project kits and curricula for parents.
We’ll have more details on their new book after the jump. They’ve also offered us this PDF project excerpt: a quilted Pin the Tail on the Donkey game that you can use over and over, and loan to friends. Click below for the full project!

Make Stuff Together is more than a collection of projects. Bernadette and Kathy drew on their years of experience crafting with kids to create instructions that take into account attention spans, energy levels, and navigating the line between interesting learning challenges and overwhelming complexity. Each project is divided into three phases, so you can break it up over as many sessions as your kids need to stay engaged in the process.

There are useful bags made from old wetsuits and bike tires, game boards made from coffee sacks, and tableware made from leftover scrap fabric.
This book is a great introduction to sewing for kids, with projects that range in complexity for both younger and older children. For parents, it’s a solid companion for summertime craft adventures.
