    I loved making costumes when my three children were younger. After many years of not sewing, I have recently started creating again. Unfortunately, I gave all of my patterns away years ago and am having to rebuild. Now, I have four grandchildren and a fifth on the way, what a joy your book would be in creating memories for my childrens children.

    For many years I made costumes for my children - several of them even won prizes - from elementary school on through graduate school and "real life". I am thrilled that there is a new generation and I can go back to making dreams come true for my grandson. This book would be the perfect addition to my library of sources for ideas and techniques.

  26. NancyReynolds | | #26

    I have a 6-year old grandson who loves to wear costumes--even when it's not Halloween! I'd like to peruse the book to see what we could come up with to add to his collection of outfits from Superheroes to Charlie Chaplin!

    I hope I make the deadline. I love making my grandbabies their costumes & dress up clothes. This book would be invaluable. I am disabled so have time to do for them is it is too strenuous.

    My youngest goes to our local playgroup, Caterpillars. Every year they have a big fundraising event to raise funds to purchase some of the play equipment the play group needs. I found this book; Cute and Easy costumes for kids, in the Library and have had to keep re-borrowing it so I can use it to make costumes. I must say it is very practical easy to follow book, the patterns are such an added bonus!
    I hope to donate the costumes I make for sale at the play groups fundraising. Having my own copy would make it so much easier and I could do this every year for the Playschool. Goodluck all.
