pattern review: sewing for children contest

today starts the voting for the pattern review "sewing for children" contest. this is the first time i've been put together enough to submit a project, so i'm pretty pleased with myself. there are quite a few nice entries, so if you are a pattern review member... go vote for your favorites! i feel awkward asking anyone to vote for me, but if you feel so moved, my entry is the burda duffle coat i made for my daughter.

she still loves her coat, it hasn't fallen apart, and it made it through several days of sledding in the backyard (we got a solid foot of snow over break)! that in and of itself is a win in my book.

  1. Done! You shouldn't feel awkward at all - you did a fantastic job on this coat. And we were probably going to vote for it anyway! ;-)

  2. Voted - and good luck :) It is a fabulous coat!


i appreciate all the feedback, but will no longer be responding to comments left here. i have moved all my content to wordpress (see link at the top of the page!) and will now be posting there. all my posts can be found in my wordpress archive. thanks for reading and please visit my new page!
