ModKid Summer Fun Blog Hop


If there’s something we’re obsessed with in the office, it’s the word “mini.” Mini quilts, mini print, mini projects–we love them all! There’s just something so cute about seeing something we’re used to being a normal size look tiny (that’s why everyone steals those mini shampoo bottles from hotels, right??). That’s why Patty Young‘s new book Summer Fun for Stash Books is on our must-have reading list! Get your very own copy here.



The book features 7+ stylish projects for 18″ dolls (perfect for all those American Dolls your kids may have!). The projects are great for all the summer activities you have planned–from camping to swimming to playtime. Your child’s doll can experience summer fun right along with your child. Make multiples of a cute T-shirt and cargo shorts for mix-and-match outfits. A reversible sun hat, swim suit, beach bag, and swim suit cover-up are necessary for any day at the pool. And a sleeping bag and pillow will make your doll the most fashionable while camping. We chose to feature the pillow pattern! (If you didn’t know, Patty Young and her ModKid shop is a supporter of our One Million Pillowcase Challenge, so it only seemed fitting for us to make a pillow!).



Each pattern in this book is perfect for personalizing! We made the pillows reversible using a variety of Michael Miller fabrics. But you could add ribbon, rickrack, buttons, or embroidery to make it extra-special for your doll! The patterns in this book are so easy to understand and follow! They have full-size pattern sheets, full-color diagrams and photography, and include a variety of techniques, so you (and your child) can learn something along the way. Make sure to get your copy today!
