*update* congratulations to the winner, thecraftingfiend!

Don't we all secretly want to be fashion designers? Perhaps that has to do with "Project Runway," or the ability to express your personality through what you wear.

This week's giveaway is a sweet fashion design book and kit for kids ages 8 and up, and it comes with the most adorable mini dress form you've ever seen. "The Fashion Designer’s Handbook and Fashion Kit" by Marjorie Galen and published by Workman will teach kids how to sew and become a fashion designer in 33 fabulous projects. The kit includes:

- 24 reusable patterns for doll-size creations
- 3 projects for "girl size" clothes
- 1 dress form
- 3 decorative fabrics
- rick rack
- embroidery thread
- tape measure

The dresses will fit 11.5" fashion dolls (including Barbie) all the way to “girl-size” projects for the designer to make and wear herself! It shows how to think and work like a designer — from finding inspiration to sketching to developing a personal style.
