S4S- It's Cold Outside, Part 1 (and Giveaway!)

A round-up of all my favorite jacket and coat patterns:

Urban Hoodie PDF Pattern by Heidi and Finn




And from my current favorite book, Sewing Clothes Kids Love:


The Silver Lake Windbreaker The Avalon Jacket


I am still copying and tracing patterns, so I can't show you what I have made yet using this fab book, but I love it! It is fun, versatile, easy to understand. . . Did I mention that I LOVE this book? So, let's give one away, shall we? For a copy of the book, Sewing Clothes Kids Love by Nancy Langdon and Sabine Pollehn leave a comment on this post. Winner will be announced August 15th. And don't forget to leave a way for me to email you, should you be the winner.
And if you just can't wait. . .

I love the urban hoodie! Thanks for the idea. I also love sewing books--they're my new vice. I usually check them out from the library and copy what I need, but it's so much nicer to have my own copy! sorainima@gmail.com

I bought this book too and I love it.... but like you I am still in the process of coping patterns, and soon sewing. So no need to count me for the giveaway!
Cannot wait to see what you are making! I am planning on a cool boy shirt, we will see if it passes 10 years old approval!

Oh I really want to see that book! I'm on the wait list for it at the local library but can't seem to make it to the top of the list!! And none of the local shops seem to stock it and I really, really, really want to see this before I buy it (which I'll probably end up doing if I'm not lucky enough to win a copy here)!

I would LOVE this book!! I could really use some of these jackets up here in Alaska!! We are still here and it really is cold!! Well...from what I'm used to in Aug in WA state...it's rained or been overcast the entire 3 weeks we've been here:( Summer is my fav season so this has been a bit hard for me. We will prob be staying for another 3 weeks while my hubby finishes his job. We did get to see the COOLEST air show EVER on sat tho:) Arctic Thunder - that sadly 4 men from the base died practicing for...so tragic. Thanks for the giveaway tho, sorry for the long winded post - I'm looking forward to getting home and finally finishing my pinafore! Thanks for the chance to win...jmierandco@gmail.com
