Anyone know where to look for these? I've found a few nice blogs but would welcome patterns I can buy for my daughter to sew using a machine. e.g. cushions, simple bags, doll quilt, clothes. The local sewing shop seems to stock complex or adult clothing patterns.

Thank you!

Simplicity does "It's so easy" patterns.

There's bags on page 2, 5 and 6.

Also a nice cushion pattern that looks fun but easy is:

And another that has a selection of stuff is:

I started sewing with a hand powered Singer at age 8yo and very quickly learnt to use standard patterns for clothing, only really needed a bit of initial help over notations etc.
