Bruno the Tailor (1996)

Bruno (a.k.a. Harvey) is really creative today. He wants to make a new apron. He brings a needle, thread and a pair of scissors. Bruno's simple pattern is easy for anyone to use. The apron looks nice and is very good to have when you do wood working or bakes a cake.

In the second book about Bruno (now Harvey) you get to follow him when he chooses fabric, washes and irons it. Then he draws a pattern and cuts the fabric. Finally it's time to sew and attach the ribbon. The book finishes with some clever tips and of course the pattern for the apron so that you can make your own!
