I WANT this for me! I love this stuff! In my town there is an old lady who dresses as pretty as the little girls in this book. I think she looks absoluety lovely. and, I want to be just like her. only, I want to win this book so I can do it now at 40 rather than wait till I'm 80 like her.
Her hats are like the ones in the Girl's World book on the page where they are having a lovely tea party.

Onyx147 Onyx147 writes: Inspiration is something that we never know where it's going to come from. It's all around us every day. Nature, people, animals, etc. I have 2 granddaughters, one that I made some outfits for school and the other I'm still trying to figure out what she considers "cool." She just says when she sees me dressed up that I am "rocking it." I believe that's a good thing. My older granddaughter recently told me that she has always loved the fact that I embroidered a design with her name in her outfits. She said it made her feel so very special. I believe that this book that is geared for girls would be a wonderful gift and also give both of them inspiration too, as well as myself.

Let us all try to remember what gave us that first inspiration that made us think. Gee, I've got to learn how to sew and create too.

sewnonnie sewnonnie writes: I sew for my 7 granddaughters and the 3 grandsons that are still young enough to wear the heirloom type clothing. This book would not only give me inspiration and ideas, but will also be a valuable tool as I teach my granddaughters how to sew. Since every girl has such a different personality, I need ideas that range from the "diva" among them, to the sports fanatic who would rather wear a soccer uniform than a dress any day! This book would cover every need and whim of all my precious grandchildren and make it fun at the same time. You just can't get any better than that!

ctirish ctirish writes: April, I love to sew for my granddaughters. Bridget, Cate, Lauren and Shannon. They love everything I make whether it is a dress, outfit or a pillowcase for their bed. The smiles that light up their faces when I ask them if they want to pick out fabric are priceless. They love to have fittings and know pictures include front and back views. My goal this year is to make matching dresses for all four girls and something that complements for my grandson. This book and Jennifer are great inspirations and maps for success.

sewkatieb sewkatieb writes: I have a slipcover business that keeps me pretty busy, but during a slow period last year, I spent a couple of afternoons with my friend's 9 year old daughter helping her with sewing projects. My kids are all grown up, and it was so fun to encourage this young creative sewer and help her learn how to use her new sewing machine. Business has picked up and it's hard to carve out the time, but this book would be a special treat for her.

jemno jemno writes: My grand-daughters and even my grandsons and I sew together. Their function is to push the Bernina symbol to make the machine go but my 5 year old grand daughter and I are working on embroidery for a dress we are making for her Laura doll. She is ready to help sew real things. Her 3 year old sister is picking patterns for doll clothes and clothes for herself. Soon, we can sew together. The description of this lovely book sounds like a good one for Grammy and grand-daughters to sew in and it sounds like some projects could be adapted for the young grandson's who like to help in the sewing room. Thank you.

jocarito jocarito writes: Wow! Sewing for little girls is fascinating and rewarding. There so many beautiful and colorful fabrics that make each sewing project unique,especially fabrics with out of the ordinary designs and color palettes.
This new book looks like it will become a classic, at least in my library.
My oldest granddaughter just found out she is pregnant and, as you can imagine, I am hoping the baby will be a girl. On the other hand I have two beautiful granddaughters in Arkansas whom I love to surprise. Plus, I have many special little girls that have become to be a part of my life and who inspire me to continue sewing.

RALL RALL writes: My ten year old GRANDdaughter, Isabelle, loves to wear fancy and unusual clothing. She also loves to sew and I gave her a Singer Featherweight portable for Christmas last. She is creative and lovees for me to sew for her.
Since she was very little and toddling around the sewing room, she has recognized her dress scraps in the trash can and loves to put them outside for the birds to use for nests.
She notices everything about a dress or a pattern and always wants everything personalized somehow when we sew.
I have always loved to sew and it is such a joy to have this wonderful child who also loves to sew.

Spiritpeh Spiritpeh writes: I have been sewing for girls for years! I have 3 grand-daughters, ages 13, and 6(twins). They all have their own sewing machines, and have basic sewing skills. The twins started at 3, when they helped sew their own Easter dresses.
I also teach a small sewing group of girls,(and 1 boy) with The American Sewing Guild. These kids all have a love of sewing, and I try to find things for them to learn and sew.
We also do charity sewing to show our love of sewing and
along with giving someone a smile.
I would love to win this book, so I can have fresh ideas, and be able to better teach the girls on their levels.
I sew for family, friends and anyone with a need for sewing.
My favorite is for girls, because their eyes just light up.
Last year, I made the twins' Baptismal dresses to their delight, and raves fon others on how pretty they were =O).
Thanks for the consideration!

I recently introduced my Grands to hand sewing, a way of sharing one of my favorite things. I would let them help me construct these dresses as a way of deepening their love and understanding of the sewing process. To me, sewing is not just about the process and project but it goes much deeper, it is a way of giving a part of myself to the project I'm working on. It is a way of sharing a part of myself whenever I create something on the sewing machine.

sewthrilling sewthrilling writes: Just bought my 8-year-old niece her first "real" machine at Christmas. Her love of costumes gives me loads of creative opportunities. First, it was the convertible Disney princess dress, a Belle golden ballgown complete with removable skirt swags that quickly transformed to Snow White by unbuttoning the swags and adding the blue bolero jacket with huge puff sleeves. Hats, too, are special favorites, from the oversized felt beret to the fascinator with oodles of bling and tulle. I am thrilled that she is next in a long line of seamstresses stretching back to her great-grandmothers and beyond.

It always made me laugh when I took their measurements cause they ( the measurements) usually looked something like..... 20:25:20.... unlike most girly figures which are "supposed" to be the opposite with the little number in the middle.I love sewing new things and now one of my nieces has the bug too, not having any kids of my own,this book would be a great way to spend time with my nieces. Something I very much enjoy to do!!! Why do they have to grow up so fast.

Grandmaman Grandmaman writes: The little girl for whom I love to sew is the youngest of only 2 granddaughters mixed in with 9 grandsons. She is five and enjoys ballet and tap. She surprised me by reading one of my e-books to me as we sat together on the couch the other day. All the things I have sewn for her from a fleece cape to pjs and nitegown, and play dresses and dressup ones, she wears with pleasure. Her mom tries to send me photos via the internet. We now live two hours away so we don't visit as often. But, since she is so receptive to grandmaman's gifts, there's much motivation to use for her some of my favorite stash and trims as well as the embroidery stitches built into my 1630 Bernina. New ideas for projects such as stuffed toys and little accessories such as purses would be welcome.

Since she is not as interested in hiking gear and accessories, I would love a book of projects that we can do together and teach her how to sew. My secret goal is for me to sew her Senior Prom dress.

They have sewn soft pillows for cancer patients, and love to come to my sewing room to make p.j.'s and pillow cases. I am a seamstress/quilter and have made costumes for the Brenham Maifest celebration that has been held in Brenham, Tx. for over 120 yrs. Each of the grandchildren have participated throughout their school yrs. Have you ever made a "cheeseburger" costume? Our 3 girls and 2 boys all like to sew, and this book sounds great.

ringadal ringadal writes: I started sewing just after college over a summer when unemployed I lived with my parents until I returned to graduate school. After graduating I quit sewing except for the odd curtain or Halloween costume. After the arrival of my daughter, I wanted to dress her in cute, well made clothes but found the clothes that I was drawn to were European and way out of my budget; $40 for a simple corduroy dress was too much so I returned to sewing. I really enjoy sewing for my now 7 year old daughter and she loves it too. She gets to pick the style, the color and details. She loves the planning and relishes in the reactions she gets when wearing the unique clothing that I sew for her and enjoys telling people that "my mom made it for me." She may not always appreciate what I sew for her, but at this time she loves it and I love sewing for her. I believe it also gives her a pride in being unique and doing things for herself.

Now when my daughter wants something made she makes it herself. With all three of my boys married, I've started the second generation of sewing for little girls. I have a granddaughter who is going to be three this month and another granddaughter coming in June. I'm looking forward to sewing for many more years.

Sewitall2 Sewitall2 writes: I remember watching my grandmother sew on her treadle machine and was always intrigued by how she would make something beautiful out of a piece of cloth. She never used patterns, just instinct. I taught myself to sew when my mother said it would be best to learn from a book then I could form my own way of sewing. So I learned couture techniques that I could apply to any sewing project.
I sewed for my daughters as they grew up and now I have a granddaughter and a grandson for whom I sew. Although my granddaughter lives in the country, she loves dressy clothes; this four year old is into her "princess" craze! She definitely has a flair for pretty clothes! I love to see her little face light up when she is astonished to see a cape when 30 minutes before there was only fabric! It's always a joy to make something that I make that my granddaughter, grandson, and daughters like and use!
I am looking forward to this new book and all the ideas it has to offer!

marasews marasews writes: Although my parents loved that I would sew for the family(as it saved them money), they discouraged me from pursuing any kind of a career that had to do with sewing. So whenever I see a young one who displays a desire to sew I try to encourage them to pursue it to the degree that it makes them happy. Although I have found many that have shown a desire---none has shown a willingness to follow through like my neighbors daughter. Our local sewing store has kids classes---for kids 8 and older. The day my neighbors daughter turned 8, she was at my front door asking for her lessons! Since then she has made 3 quilts and various other projects. (She turned 9 in December)I am looking forward to her trying garment sewing as it is my passion---this book would be a great start for her as we planned to start during spring break.

My favorites by far, are the two layer fleece coat in orange and watermelon pink and the adorable circle skirt I made to match a sweater her Grandma handknit for her. Anything that she has outgrown gets passed on to our friend's daughter, who is 4. Our friend already has her eyes on several pieces that Catie is on the verge of not fitting in but isn't ready to relinquish! I learned to sew at 11 and I already have a machine for my daughter for whenever she's ready to learn. (A real machine - not one of the cheap plastic ones that she got frustrated with!)

Within four hours she had mastered threading and loading the bobbin and all 33 stitches! She surprised us with a pair of pillowcases she designed and made and, best of all, wrote "I love you" by freehand moving a decorative stitch on a fleece book mark for me as a thank you. We've taken her to Mood Fabrics and M & J Trim in New York when we were there for a wedding, and she was in awe. Since then her sewing has continued to advance, and we share this passion. Her birthday present last year was an all-day sewing class one-on-one with an excellent teacher, and she finished her first garments after that. When we gave her $50 of fabric at a local store, she bought pieces to make little bags for every member of her family, and she has been teaching her best friend to sew as well. When she liked the look of fingerless gloves, she figured out how to make her own and did. I am so proud of her and continue to look for ways to support her burgeoning passion. I know she would love this book!

hoodwinked hoodwinked writes: I gave my six year old granddaughter a sewing machine for Christmas this year and she is just learning to sew. She has a million and one questions about everything and a book that teaches sewing for her age would be wonderful.
Helping her learn is my project because her mother does not sew and has no interest in learning. It gives us some great together time together and since I ran a shop for a while, I have cabinets full of fabric, threads and findings that are just begging to be used.
I wish everyone could win, and we could all enjoy the book. Good luck to everyone.

I love them dearly and treasure the chance to make things for them, one of my joys in life.

I love creating and embellishing, and taking something normal and turning it into a work of art. Rowynn was born 8 months ago to my wonderful son and is wife. She never cries?! Well maybe once or twice, but if I had children like her I would have had more. Her laugh is contagious, her smile brings warmth to my heart, and when you hold her, you know that you and her will be friends forever. To see her with my son, brings tears to my eyes. Daddy's little girl. She will sit with him for long stretches of time just cooing and snuggling. She is very blessed to have a dad like Andrew. He is definitely a hands-on dad and would, if he could, spend all of his time with his girl. Sewing for her...oh yes...lots and lots of sewing. It is one way that I can play a part in her life while not living close to them. "Look mom - another package from Lady Di (me)", she's made me something else!

She likes to look through my patterns and pattern magazines to find outfits she would like me to make, and wants one for her dolly, too.

She may be too little to operate the sewing machine yet, but she'll be able to help with pattern placement and cutting out, and after I'm gone the book will be a reminder of "Grammy."

She began her life with a brain trauma and for a very long time we were very worried about her future. However, thanks to the wonderful professionals at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, her therapist, her pediatrician, and most especially her mum and her two aunties, our Seren has blossomed into a beautiful child. Her most recent developmental assessment indicates she will now have no problems attending a regular school so we are truly blessed and give thanks every day.

Seren is a Welsh name meaning "Little Star" and she is exactly that - the light of my life.

Seren is the reason for me entering this contest. I want to create pretty, fun, and special things to adorn her world... "A Girl's World."

StitchinTricia StitchinTricia writes: I love to sew for my two granddaughters and two grandsons-- but since two live in Texas and I am in MI, there is only one granddaughter here to 'sew with' me. Hailey is eight years old and her brother,Zach, is also eight-- twins, of course. They lost their mom to an unexpected death last August. Their Dad, my son, has applied for their custody but the MI judge wants to evaluate the decision, over time, since the children have always lived in MI. Because of this, I have a temporary shared custody with their aunt.

Hailey and Zach spend three weekends a month, and half their holidays, with me and my husband. Their Dad does his best to be here at least one weekend a month.

Hailey wants to learn to sew with me and she just completed her first project, a pair of warm fleece slippers. Since I first learned to sew when I lived with my grandmother, at about that age, I love being able to share this learning with Hailey!

My ten year old grand nephew drew an amazing christmas card of a cement dog that sits on his grandmother's front porch. His aunt created an amazing christmas card out of this drawing for his grandmother to use at christmas time as cards.
I was soooooo blown away I decided to take it a step further.
I created a fabric copy of the dog on the computer and built a country french (fabric) pillow around the picture. My sister in law called me and was sooooooooo thrilled that she asked me to make four more. Lucky for me I had a big bag of country french scraps from a LA store which is no longer in business.

I also have five granddaughters including almost four year old twins girls. Last year they had a Scouby Doo birthday party.
I created Velma and ? costumes. Believe it or not one tries
to punch into the purple dress and the other one wears the
orange sweater even though the sleeves are too short. Makes my heart flutter..............

VictoriaR VictoriaR writes: I would love to get this book for my little girl. She is 10 and will be 11 on Valentine's Day. I have always been a sewer, but my daughter is just learning. I have taught a couple of classes to her and her friends and it has been great fun. It is wonderful to see the excitment of being able to create something of fabric. I'm planning on continuing to teach and sew with my daughter and her friends.

LadyShadow LadyShadow writes: I have two daughters and a niece I love sewing for. They all love to have the same thing made as each other, but with small personality differences. I have recently started teaching my girls hand sewing and cross-stitch. Hopefully this year I can get them machine sewing.

Ogden Ogden writes: My daughter, her husband and my three grandchildren, including my granddaughter, Annika, who is almost 7, live in Germany. The last time I saw them, a year ago Christmas, I began to teach Annika how to sew. We created a simple pattern and dress for her American Girl Doll. Recently, she asked my daughter whether they were going to vacation at Nana and Poppy's house this year. My daughter told her yes they are planning a visit in June, but asked why do you want to know. Annika replied, "I want to learn how to sew." I suggested to my daughter that I would come up with something fun, like a stuffed animal. My daughter replied, "Yes, a stuffed animal would be fine, but she's wants to learn how to make her own clothes!" This book would definitely be a great tool to have to ensure success.

annenet annenet writes: My Granddaughter Emy! Right now she's 6 months old but I'm really looking forward to sewing for her. So far I've made bibs, a quilt and a pillow for her room but it will be fun to make her some dresses and clothes. I've already told her Mom I want to teach her to sew when she gets older. Mom is on board with that!

sewmodest sewmodest writes: After 17 years and 4 boys, I finally got a 2nd little girl. A sweet little redhead! I had to wait so long to sew ruffles and ribbons and ALL things girly, so I try to do it every chance I get. (let's face it with 4 big brothers, we have to be extra girly, even if we're playing action figures!)

Marguerite Marguerite writes: My granddaughter, Ariana (age 2 at the time), toddled over to me while I was sewing a rip on her Dad's Army pants. (I keep an extra machine at their house.) She said, "Up, up." I put her on my lap so she could see what I was doing. We've been sewing together ever since then.

She's five now and told me, "Gran, I love to sew." I wanted to die from the joy. I didn't have a daughter to teach, but this is way better. Just lately, she learned to stop, start, and turn a corner. And if this isn't enough to thrill a grandmother, now she wants to learn to crochet. I think the book would be great for both of us.

Be still, my heart!

robi0622 robi0622 writes: I would love to win this book for my daughter Molly, she is a 6th grade teacher of social studies in New Orleans, she started a sewing club after school for anyone interested in learning how to sew. She has been able to get a lot of fabric and other supplies from "freecycle" and "Craig's List", as a teacher she has to provide for her club. She does not charge the students. So this would be a wonderful addition! She loves sewing from vintage patterns you can see her projects here: http://mollysews.blogspot.com/.Thanks!

Widdle Widdle writes: The little girl I sew for? My new baby daughter, Dawn, born this past August. I have made her numerous items, dresses, onesies, nursery decor and stuffed toys. What a thrill it is to see her wearing unique items, but the best is when she hugs her favorite mommy made stuffies. That is when my heart soars.

mommabear121 mommabear121 writes: This book would be so helpful in my sewing for grand daughters. Both the girls are feminine oriented and I am continually on the prowl looking for ideas and buying used and dressing it up, etc., anything to stay within a budget and still see the look of delight in their faces when they see the newest creation from grandma. The older of the 2 is now trying sewing for herself and I hope to afford her a basic sewing machine for her birthday in a few months. I am so delighted with both of them, they love homemade items and are yearning to develop skills. This book could be such a blessed addition to our family, thank you for the opportunity to have such an interesting book.

amack amack writes: OH I LOVE THIS!! My little girl is 14 now, so I have moved onto sewing for my adorable nieces. I have two nieces who are truly girly girls. They love fun, whimsical fabrics and get excited EVERY TIME I bring them something new. I love to create for my nieces, using all the new fabrics and patterns that are available. Everyday is different for these little girls, some days they are princesses and need the frilly dresses and the next day they are "ladies" having tea and need the classics!! This book would give me the best of all worlds!!! I would love to own it, (and my nieces, Lilly and Gabby would love it too!!)!!
