Birthday Giveaway Four!-CLOSED

My sister, Jordan, and I, basking in the sunlight and bundled in quilted coats! These are a couple of little jackets my Grandma Fae brought back from their trip to China.  

Ottobre Magazine is usually the first place I look when I get the itch to sew a jacket or coat, but all their patterns are well designed.  I love the little details they include that you don't get from big name patterns.  One magazine could last you a whole year with the amount of patterns included!  They are giving one of my readers a year's subscription because they are on my "few of my favorite things" list!
Leave a comment (please include your email address if it isn't linked to your profile) to enter.  Winners chosen Monday!

  1. At least the jackets were warm - heaven forbid we should find ourselves making them again. On the other hand those little ottobre shirts with ruffles are just heavenly.
