Patty’s new book, Sewing Mod Kid Style, Modern Threads for the Cool Girl is as cute as it is helpful with full sized pattern sheets and 20 projects for girls ages 2-10.

  1. I put this book on my Amazon wish list since I started to learn how to sew clothing for my 9 yrs old daughter. The style looks so fresh and beautiful. I’m on the lookout for neat pattern designs to try out! The fabrics certainly are very modern!

  2. Oh my goodness, what a great giveaway! I sew for a 3 year old princess and she would LOVE this book and these fabrics! the size range from 2-10 is great. We’ll be able to use it for years.

  3. I would love this book. I sew for my granddaughter and my nieces..they love ModKid Patterns and the fabric is beautiful! I also have plenty of Babylock Machines to sew the fabric up on!

  4. I would love to win because I love to sew. I feel God has given me a wonderful gift of sewing and I use it for His glory. I sew for children in our town that would not have cloths. I also teach mothers to sew so they can make themselves and there children cloths. I collect sewing machines for them so they will have something to use. I have 2 in the repair shop now just waiting for the money so I can get them fixed for them. God has blessed me and I want to be a blessing to Him. “I never knew of anyone that went broke by giving!”
    Thanks, Terri

    This book would be so awesome!

  9. These projects are right up my alley. Love the book and the fabrics and love sewing for my grand children!

  11. I would love to win the autographed book and the fabrics! Patty Young has such great style for kids. My granddaughter (and her mom) love the things I make with your patterns and fabrics!

  12. I would love to make some cute things for my grand niece – practicing for when I have my own grandchildren – can’t wait!

  13. Perfect for the Grandkids!!!

  14. I have 3 granddaughters not quite 2 years old. What a great way to express my love … handmade special dresses for special little girls!

  15. I’d love to use these items to make some clothes for my little grands! 🙂

  16. I love sewing for my 3 year old daughter. She is involved in the whole process from picking a pattern to picking the fabric to helping pin, etc., and how fun it will be to include Michael Miller fabrics and Patty’s pattern ideas! Sew On!

  17. I love Patty Young! I have made many pairs of her Sophie pants pattern for my 20 month old and get nothing but compliments!

  18. Would love the book & gift. Just about to have another grand daughter to sew for:) thanks

  19. I simply canNot get enough of ModKid patterns. I think I have sewn almost all of them for my three granddaughters. Here is the reason why. Each of the girls is very specific about the way clothes “FEEL” on them, Patty’s patterns “feel comfortable” whether they are climbing a tree, in the sand box or attending a “Daddy and Me” dance. Even their American Girl Dolls love ModKid patterns. My three little grands are “walking advertisements” for ModKid….and will be for a long time to come.

  20. I have just started sewing and am absolutely in love with it! New hobby for sure! I would love to win the book because I am a dry sponge and want to absorb everything I can. The fabric would be fabulous so that I can continue to grow in this new skill. Thanks for the oppurtunity!

  21. I have just started sewing for my two grand daughters, ages 3 and 6 and would love to have patterns and fabrics to sew for them. Thank you for the offer!

  22. I love all aspects of sewing, but especially love sewing for my grandchildren. This would be great for sewing items for my granddaughters!

  23. I would love to win the book and the fabric. My 9th grandchild just arrived and they are all expecting great gifts from Grandma!

  24. Because I decided not to BUY summer cloths for my little daughter this year, but to sew them all by my self. Could use some more patterns and nice knit fabrics 🙂
    (I LOVE carnival bloom!)


  25. I would love to win this book/fabric for my new granddaughter and a chance to use my new Babylock Evolution Serger!

  26. If the patterns are the dress’s on the front of her book, it would be awesome to win so I could make one of them for my little girl! I just love making her pretty dress’s to wear!! The fabrics would allow me to start right away!

  27. I would LOVE to make some Patty Young designs for my 2 little, extreme fashionistas 🙂

  28. I stumbled onto Patty Young fabric and ModKid designs a couple of years ago and have been hooked on sewing for my girls ever since. I love how her patterns make me feel like an expert and the fabrics are just beautiful to look at and work with.
    Thanks for a chance to win : )

  29. Who wouldn’t want to win a signed copy of Party Young’s book plus her fabric?! I love to sew for my step daughter and I’m sure she’d flip for these styles 🙂

  30. I want to win because I love sewing clothes for my daughter but she is bigger than the sizes in most girls clothing books and I have wanted to sew with knit fabric.

  31. After driving 3 hrs to visit Patty during her Grand Opening of her new headquarters and actually seeing her gorgeous fabrics in person and meeting her in person too I knew even more that she’s a wonderful person. I absolutely love her newest fabric line and her book HAS to be a must have in my sewing library. I have two granddaughters; one 4yrs old and the other 2 1/2 months old plus a grandson too and I just know her book will be very well used in my house as I have a lot of adorable little models for her clothing patterns.

  32. I have two girls 7 and 11 years old. I absolutely adore Patty Young’s fabrics and patterns. I teach sewing classes at local stores and the ModKid patterns are one of my favorites the instructions are so clear and well written. I can’t wait to see the book…if it is anything like the patterns it will be FABULOUS!!!

  33. I have been wanting to make dresses for charity and haven’t seen any patterns that I like, these are wonderful and the fabric would get me started on some pretty dresses for little girls.


  34. I love to learn and the more we learn the better we get at our crafting.
    I also love fabric! All different kinds. I love to quilt and make gifts. Thanks for the opportunity to win fabric and a signed copy of your book!

  35. I would like to win some material and this awesome book because I would like to make my 2 little sunhines some clothes. My 2 grand babes are my inspiration!

  36. I sew for my great niece’s and nephew and 2 more on the way ((!! I think it would be something real special to make something that Patty has in her give aways (Fabrics). I am not sure if I would qualify, as I live in Canada? But if would sure be nice to win!!! Please let me know if I would qualify!!!

  37. Would love to win this new book and fabrics. I recently began sewing for my Granddaughter. I love that Patty talks about easy sewing techniques and accessories. Things have changed so much in the 40 years since I actually made clothing for myself. My four year old granddaughter loves to help me sew for her. I think we will have a sewer when she grows up.
    And I love the fabrics, they look like they would be great to sew with.

  38. I have an 11 year old great-granddaughter who wants to learn to sew. I am planning on signing her up for classes this June. This book would be a good addition to her library.

  42. What a great giveaway! I have a 4 year old daughter that loves custome clothes and this book is already on my Amazon wishlist!!

  43. I’ve recently started learning how to sew, trying to learn everything I can about different techniques, fabrics, etc. This book would be a great tool to expand my knowledge. Plus, the fabric, I’m sure, would be awesome!

  44. God gives to each of us a special talent. Mine is the ability to create through sewing for my family and others. I would love this book to add to my library of sewing books and patterns to further my sewing talents. Thank you for considering me to win this wonderful book. To Him be the glory!

  45. After really not sewing for 20 years and recently getting back into it, I never have enought time to do everything I would like. I guess I am just planning to have tons of ideas when I get to retire. No unfinished projects at this point, so maybe I do not qualify at this point.

  47. I would love to win to brush up on ny sewing skills!

  48. I would really love this so I can make great things for my children ages 10, 5 and 2!
