I read somewhere that 45% people listed shopping as one of their major past-times. I got depressed when I realised it was probably one of mine. Sewing at least seems like a genuine hobby. With the added bonus of of getting unique clothes kind of cheaply.
Anyway, no-one else seemed to be making patterns that appealed to my sensibility and let me get them right when I was feeling inspired so I thought Id give it a crack.
A beautiful quilted jacket with zip front that you can also make as a 'puffy'.
This is a simple five piece pattern which you can make reversible if you wish. It is perfect for keeping a little one warm and for showing off your nifty quilting skills.
I made this pattern with Australian fabric designer Saffron Craig to showcase her beautiful fabrics. You can buy the pattern as part of a kit with her fabric . The examples made here use the Forest Elementals range. I plan to make a raincoat next by waterproofing some cotton and using this pattern.
