Modkid® Summer Fun - blog tour and GIVEAWAY!

I am so happy to be kicking off the MODKID® SUMMER FUN pattern-book blog tour - Patty's newest book is SUPER FUN AND FABULOUS and includes patterns and instructions to create 7 stylish projects for your favorite 18" doll - cargo shorts, a t-shirt, reversible sun-hat, swimsuit cover-up, sleeping bag and pillow, beach bag and swimsuit.We are still totally doll-crazy around here! But as my daughters get older, their focus has shifted from merely playing with their dolls to crafting and sewing for them, too! This book will totally hit the spot for summer crafting inspiration.


Life has been a bit crazy around here (as we prepare for a move) so I only had a chance to make a few of the projects - the adorable bikini, the reversible sun hat and the beach bag. They went together so quickly (gotta love that about sewing for dolls!) and had great, easy to read sewing instructions! We will save the rest of the projects for this summer (and after the move!) I think these will be great projects for the girls and me to create together over the summer! And the ability to use a lot of different (small) pieces of fabric will do good things to reduce the scrap pile!


I want this bikini in MY size. Oh. Also, I want my size to be a 4 ;) 

The tote is totally adorable! The odd shape is completely due to the fact that sometimes I sew about as good as a drunk monkey - no fault of the pattern maker :) Good thing the dolls can't complain! No. But seriously, that is wicked crooked. And yes, mom, I was totally sober while I was sewing.

Would you love to win your own copy of this fabulous pattern book? Leave a comment - and be sure to leave a way for me to contact you- and you will be entered to win! (non-US residents will receive a digital copy) I will choose a winner on April 7th. The pattern book will be sent to the winner directly from the publisher. Giveaway is closed.



Be sure to follow along on the rest of the blog tour!
