We're planning to start basic hand sewing (before introducing the machine) this summer and here are some links we'll be using. I've included the above hadith to stress the importance of sewing for boys, just as it is for girls :)
Update: We just started using this book as a guide. It has step-by- step lessons with projects. I'll post pictures of our projects soon, insha Allah.
