My oldest child is 6 and in first grade being homeschooled. While this isn't an undertaking that is for everyone, for us it works well. She's very distractable and being in small to Very Small groups works better for her.
This is the book that we're working from as our sewing text.

She had a lot of fun making her first project - the drawstring bag - today.
Here she is with her bag. You'll recognize the fabric!
The great thing about this book is the vintage illustrations. It's an amazing trove of great stuff!
