    I have no grandchildren of my own so I sew for grandnieces and friends’ children, wherever I can find them!

  2. Carla says:

    My nieces are being raised as “little girls” for as long as possible—finding cute clothes that aren’t too “grown-up/teenager-ish” is nearly impossible!

  3. Linda says:

    I have 3 grandaughters and love to sew for them. One is old enough to be in 4-H and I am teaching her to sew, as I will the other 2. Would really, really like to win this book!! It would be so much fun!!!

    Katie is my inspiration. She is three and loves everything Nana makes and sends her. I’ve never seen a child so grateful and so giving. She has a new 6mo old brother and loves him so much. I left their house today at nap time and she told me her brother wouldn’t be sad that Nana had to go home because she would tell him that Nana loves him and will come back as soon as she can to play with them again. Her loving makes me want to hurry home and make her somthing to always show her she is above special to those of us she touches.

    I love to sew for my two girls, especially their clothing!

    Having had 3 daughters and now 5 granddaughters, the most important thing for me when I sew for them it to reflect their individual personalities and create something that they love to wear. This usually has to do with color and style but also picking wonderful fabrics for comfort and drape. We look at magazines together and I listen carefully to what they have to say. Little ones can have very strong opinions!

    It is so rewarding to create something for them that they have helped to create themselves. One of the most exciting times for me was to see the face of surprise and wonder on the face of my 3 year old granddaughter when I presented her with a pink princess dress that was a replica of a drawing she had made……Magic!

    I have 4 grand daughters (one set of twins!!) – have sewn LOTS of dresses and of course doll clothes!! I do machine embroidery also so they have embroidered bath towels for every holiday!

    My favorite little girl is my granddaughter who is 1 1/2 years old. I have been making mostly bedding things for her and her christening gown. I want to make her some cute dresses for this summer.

  10. Petra Harpak says:

    I have 3 girls Ciera, Iceis, & Kyana ages 6, 5, & 4. At first when I first started sewing, I made all qaspaqs, a traditional Eskimo dress, for them. I then went on to making my own patterned skirts for the girls. Then I started making pillowcase dresses for them. All my girls love the dresses & skirts I make for them!

  11. Joan says:

    I have a 9 month old granddaughter. I usually knit her socks and make quilts. I would love to win the book and have all new patterns to make her some beautiful clothes.

  12. Rebecca Wood says:

    I sew for Alyson, my one and only granddaughter. She loves it when I make her 18 inch doll and she matching dresses! I love to see the big smile on her face. She has just moved into size 4 clohes and she is 3. She is a very well behaved girl and loves to play with all of her dollies! I love her so much!

  13. I have to grown boys, and 2 grandchildren the first a boy, then 7 months ago I was finally given my granddaughter, Addison Grace and she is BEAUTIFUL. I love to sew for her, I am learning, but she is so pretty we could put rags on her and it wouldn’t change a thing. I have always been a lover of anything to do with my hands. I do vinyl transfers, embroidery, heat transfers and would love more than anything learn how to sew for my long awaited girl.

    Thank You

    I use to make clothes for my children, especially my son Joshua who loved to wear a tie like his dad did for work. I also made Barbie doll clothes for my two daughters. They have all grown, married and now I have nine grand children. I started sewing my clown costumes, and occasionally added an outfit for my grand daughter. I am now sewing more clothes for them as well as their dolls. I would love to own this pattern book to help be broaden the designs for them.

  16. I have two granddaughters, They love to wear skirts. The more it has color the more they like it, I like to see them happy when they wear my homemade skirts.

  17. I have 5 grandchildren = 4 girls, 1 boy. I like to make the older girls fleece pj bottoms. They adore them. I also made them matching pillowcases and quilted throws for their beds at Christmas time. For summer I am making shorts, tops, and towels with hoods on them. I started some new items with embroidery on top of the dress for the baby girl. My little great niece made her a Strawberry Shortcake quilt and pillowcase, one great nephew was Transformers quilt and pillowcase, another great nephew was Thomas the Train, another was Lions and animals. As you can see I love to sew have been since 10 years of age.
