    My sweet baby just turned one! I make her dresses, sunsuits, ruffle pants, cute applique tops, bloomers, bibs, burp cloths… pretty much everything! I love to sew for her!

  3. Cat Cullingford says:

    I love sewing for my two granddaughters. One is a soon to be one year old and the other is three heading to 30 ! I am still new at sewing but have enjoyed learning about quilts, clothes and toys. I was given a gift of the Sew News and of course found you on facebook. Thanks for giving us fun things to try.

  4. Raquel Cointepoix says:

    I just love to make matching jumpers with a handbag to match for our little ones and
    don’t forget the hair band for the long hair . She is a 5 yr. old with long brown hair past her waist. Has never cut in her hair in her life. So beautiful. !

  5. Katherine says:

    My little girl, Izobel, is 2 years old and (perhaps as a consequence of having a stay-at-home dad) is always roughing around in pants and pajamas instead of pretty dresses. Sewing Modkid Style would ensure my little lady gets to twirl some skirts :)

  6. PeggyM says:

    I have 3 little sweet grand-daughters – that I enjoy taking care of and creating new things for them. I have even saved my daughter’s home-made items that I have regifted to their daughters. I just love the surprise on their face to see that I have saved this cherished garment.
    Once I gave Brynlee a traveling pillow for in the car with a home-made pillow case…I added a home-made pillow for her dolly and a tinny tiny pillow and case for her Barbie…ALL in matching fabric. It was so sweet to see her run and get her dolly and Barbie and put their head on their own pillow and then lay down on her own. A memory I’ll always cherish.

  7. Debra Jodoin says:

    I have four beautiful little granddaughters, Age 6 months, 3 years, 6 years, and nine years old. They LOVE when Grandma sews for them. They get so excited that I have put anything for myself on hold because the feeling I get when I see them get so excited is just priceless. I’ve been nightgowns and of course matching ones for their dolls, pajamas, and dresses.

  8. Eva Daniel says:

    I have a 3 yr. old granddaughter. She loves wearing dresses and I sew for her when I can find a few minutes. Would love this pattern book to help me make cuter clothes for her.

  9. Pat Hersl says:

    I have our dear Ryann who is just 18 mos but the light of grandparents (and many others!) lives. And if I get bored, a little dear neighbor named Sadie is just 2 mos older. They can keep my very busy with sewing.

  10. Gloria Hemmen says:

    My two granddaughters love to wear matching outfits and have matching outfits for their dolls. They truly are ModKids

    I have a 3 1/2 yearold Granddaughter…. I love making skirts and jumpers for her

  13. Lauren says:

    Actually I sew occasionallyf or my friend’s daughter. However, the biggest joy I have for sewing is brought by me sewing dresses for girls who are less fortunate. I donate them to charity and help inspire them. :)

  14. Denise Howe says:

    I sew mostly pillow case dresses for the girls in my life. Would be great to give them some new choices

  15. linda turner says:

  16. Sarah says:

    I have two 5 year old daughters and an almost 2 year old daughter. I love to make dresses for them. And right now I am working on ruffly 4th of July rompers for them all. :)

  17. Noemy kreidl says:

    This special girl in my life is my first an only (up to now) granddaughter, and for a long time I put sewing aside, when I learned that my daughter was pregnant I pray to god everyday for a girl cause i want to be able to make all the specials dresses that I didn’t do for my daughter, she is my inspiration.

  18. Michelle Hall says:

    I have 3 granddaughters now that I am starting to see again for. It would be awesome to win this book and get some fresh ideas

  19. Cynthia T. says:

    I am teaching/helping some young mothers and grandmothers from church to sew. This would be great to inspire them with some fun projects.

  20. Virginia Darwin says:

    Because I only have boys (4!) I try to sew for my friends and new borns. I get to use all the pretty girls colors I never got to use with boys!

  21. Kathi T. says:

    Today I am making sailor dresses for the kindergarten end of the year program for my twin granddaughters. My daughter has 4 girls & 1 boy. God knew I needed girls to wear my sewing(& teach my sewing….one is very interested). I love all the bright colors & busy patterns in fabrics today. Of course, I love to find vintage pieces at the thrift stores too.
    I always wonder what the little lady was like who bought it first.

  22. Marie Waterman says:

    my daughter! she’s two and loves to dress up and change clothes!

  23. Rosemary Griffis says:

    I have two granddaughters, ages 3 (just) and 5 (just). After three sons and two grandsons, I have girls to sew for. I’ve made blankets, embroidered burp cloths, costumes, holiday clothing, regular clothing, etc., and alterations (not fun). I love sewing for my little girls and look forward to teaching them to sew. I hope they never get so “cool” that they don’t enjoy Grandma’s love via needle.

  24. Debbie Ward says:

    I have made burp cloths for several babies in the family… 6 great nephews so far no little girls yet and I’m not a gma yet. However, my daughters room mate has a little girl that will be 1yr old in July and another friend is expecting a little girl in Sept…so I am excited to have some little girls around that I can sew for and would love to make some of these outfits!!

  25. Jean Clark-Collins says:

    After raising 4 boys they have finally given me granddaughters. I now have time and love to make dresses and things for them. This book would be a blessing with new and fun ideas the kids will love.

  26. Dell M says:

    I love making dresses for the little girls in my life. Two granddaughters, ages 5 and 7 and a 9 month old grandniece. What could be more fun?

  27. Jean Clark-Collins says:

    Would love a copy of this book with new and more ideas for little girls dresses. I have finally gotten girls to sew for since my son blessed me with an aquired granddaughter and one of his own. It has been fun sewing for them after raising 4 boys

  28. Pamela Coughlin says:

    I have four grand daughters, Joscelyn, Felicity, Natalie and Emily. I love sewing for all of them, whether it be clothes, jackets, pillows, bedroom stuff. With this look for the little ones, I love all the ruffles and skirts and dresses with little ruffled pants under them. It is so much fun to be able to be a part of their lives through my sewing! Love it! Thank you for the giveaway.

    My grand daughter is so cute…I have made sunhats for her, embroidered a quilt and tee shirts. I need that book, hope I win :)

  30. Evelyn says:

    I have a granddaughter and a grandniece to sew for. I am in the process of making a quilt for each of them. Haven’t made any clothes for them yet, so this book would be quite helpful.

  31. Linda Moore says:

    I have two granddaughters (ages 3 and 1) with a third one on the way! Our SIL let us know they were expecting a girl by saying “Keep your machines humming…you’re going to be making clothes for our daughter!”. I used to sew for my two daughters…and now sewing for their daughters! I am so inspired by all the creativity of new patterns/books that I’ve found online…I’ve bought very few paper patterns…but have found wonderful E-patterns that are so much fun to sew…and so cute on my granddaughters!

  32. Diane Collins says:

    I have two little girls, 7 and 4. I love to sew skirt for them out of festive prints. They love it and Mommy loves it!!

  33. Joy says:

    I am teaching 2 of my granddaughters to sew. This would be a great book for them.

  34. Patty says:

    I have an 11-year-old daughter who is such a joy! It’s fun to sew pouches and little purses for her with fun conversational fabrics. For mother’s day, she promised to sew with me. We decided to sew pajama pants for both of us in matching fabric. I’m excited to begin sewing with her this weekend.

  35. Jana Mashburn says:

    The little girl in my life is my sweet little grandbaby, Sadie Lauren, who is 14 months old. She looks so much like her mamma, Emily, that it’s like stepping back in time to the days when I so lovingly created clothing for Emily. I love sewing everything for Sadie; dresses, diaper covers, pants, pantaloons, tops/shorts. I sew almost daily and it’s not uncommon for me to be working on multiple outfits at a time. Sadie is the love of my life and I am having a ball being a Nana.

  36. Carmi says:

    I have 3 little granddaughters.

  37. Audrey says:

    My 4 and 7 year old granddaughters are the most fun to sew for. When they get something new from grandma, they like to wear it for several days in a row…until their mother makes them put the clothes in the wash. Makes me feel good!

  38. Cathy Tolbert says:

    I have 2 little granddaughters. One is 4 and the other is 2 1/2, but they are about the same size. I made them matching cousin dresses last fall.

  39. Karin says:

    My sweet 9yo daughter. Been sewing for her her whole life!

  40. Catherine Schmitt says:

    I love sewing for my 7 month old granddaughter. I didn’t have time to sew much when her mom was little so I’m making up for lost time and loving it!

  41. Gail Banks says:

    I sew for my two sweet Granddaughters and my Great Niece. I am teaching my Girlfriend how to sew now for her Granddaughters. She has a 4 year old, a 9 month old and they are expecting another little girl in 4 months. We love sewing ruffles and our girls love to spin!!

  42. Vivianne Sowa says:

    My granddaughter is five months old. I have been knitting sweaters and making sundresses out of hawaiian prints ! It is so fun to sew the little things. And, it has inspired her 19 year old mom and 16 year old auntie (we all live under the same roof) to start designing and sewing as well. It’s great to have us all being creative together.

  43. I love sewing for my two granddaughters. They are the same size (usually) and it is so easy to make 2 of everything. Not only do the granddaughters deserve outfits but both have AG dolls and we have to match!

  44. Karrie Smith says:

    I have one “niece” that I love to make stuff for. She’s my best friend’s daughter. She is about 8. I love to make her blankets, and I would LOVE to learn how to make something cute that she can wear. I have a friend who has a one year old, and I plan to do the same with her! THanks so much for the chance to win. I plan on checking this book out soon!

  45. Angela Cianfaglione says:

    I have many nieces that range from age 13-3 and I sew matching things for them. I pick a theme, like last year I sewed matching headbands and aprons to wear when they do their annual lemonade stand together. I used retro looking bright yellow lemon pattern and they looked so cute!

  46. Colleen says:

    I have a five year old daughter. I recently made her a couple of pillowcase dresses that turned out really cute.

  47. Kelli says:

    I love to sew for my niece. I have sewn jackets, a dress, a quillow, a baby quilt, pillowcases, and many more things. List is too long to write.

  48. Maria Kievit says:

    Have 4 girls. Used to sew a lot more for them than I do recently. But the latest I’ve done for them is grad dresses for gr 8 and another for gr 12, among pj’s for those who want them. Would love a copy of this book. thanks!

  49. Pat Yamada says:

    After raising four boys, I have a granddaughter! What a joy!
    And better yet, she is a girly girl. Skirts and ruffles. And cute girly clothes and
    hairbows and nail polish. So sweet!

  50. Jenni Davis says:

    Expecting my first baby, and not finding out the gender until birth. If I have a little girl, I will most definitely be making cute little girl dresses! :o )
