It's giveaway time...


The tutorials for my boy's coat pattern arrived from the printer today so I'm ready to get listing! And with every new pattern comes a giveaway so here goes...


The coat is single breasted with a slightly a-line shape for ease of movement. As per usual, it is reversible and there are three buttons on each side. It comes with the option of a hood or pointed collar. Sizes are 18m/2T and 3T/4T, and the sleeves can be rolled up to show the contrasting fabric when child is smaller and down as they grow.


The warmer weather is making me cheerful, so for a chance to win this pattern leave a comment on this post with your favourite summer smell. I'll choose randomly on Monday.

  1. Summer smell? Anything that isn't chicken/child/husband poo scented will suit me!

    Actually, I really love the smell of fresh mint. I bought a plant last week for my garden and it smells out of this world - I might have to go and sit by it this afternoon :)

  2. Just been saying that I need to stop being so girlie and make something more manly for Nathaniel! And have just won some fabulous vintage nascar fabric on ebay!!

    My favourite summer smell is sweaty children covered in suncream and homemade frozen apple juice lollies! Just love babies that smell of the outside and fun!

  15. cut grass, smoke from the BBQ ( charcoal not propane!) and beer. All at the same time- in the summer my husband takes over a lot of the cooking, as such its all done outside while I have a beer!

  21. Growing up, the old couple that lived behind us had a patch of Bearded Irises. I would give the nice old man one of my mom's clematis blooms (the only plant she could ever really grow, and it was covered in purple flowers) or a dandelion. In return, he would give me either gum, a cutting off of a snowball bush (I think it's some kind of hydrangea... the funny thing is it belonged to *his* neighbor. He'd just reach over the fence and cut one off for me.), OR an iris from his wife's garden. They had the most beautiful smell. I always hoped he'd give me an iris.

    That smell is summertime and friendliness to me. (sorry for the novel!)

    Oh , no, I lOVE the smell of tomato plants - I love to rub the leaves and get the scent from them in the summer.....

  26. Oh yummy ... What an awesome giveaway !
    Winter has well and truly hit here so I'm loving really reading about all these beautiful summer smells.
    Mine - would have to be strawberries from the garden also. But especially when I can smell then in my little boy's hair -he always seems to get them mushed in from head to toe in the process of raiding the garden!!
