Happy Christmas Eve to All! I’ll be back later today to share our Christmas PJs, but I couldn’t let the day pass without making sure that you got an opportunity to enter the huge pattern giveaway sponsored by the Designer’s Challenge participants, and since I fell terribly behind in sharing the new patterns during the challenge, I thought I’d give you a quick glance at each of them, too!
First up, the giveaway! One lucky winner will win the ENTIRE COLLECTION of Designer’s Challenge patterns! To enter, just click over to Pattern Revolution. You’ve only got a few days to enter, so hurry!
It’s my turn to reveal my Designer’s Challenge pattern — meet the Hide ‘n Go Seek Hoodie! The challenge put out to the participating designers was to really strive to design something new and unique. I have had the idea for this pattern floating around in my head for quite some time, and this was just the push I needed to actually bring it to life!Many of my faithful followers have asked for a zip-up hoodie pattern, and since outerwear is one of my favorite things to sew, I knew I needed to add one to my collection.
My first goal was to make the hoodie reversible to give you two looks in one. Outerwear tends to get more wear than other clothing between washings, and it’s so nice to be able to flip this hoodie inside out to reveal new fabrics.I also loved the idea of mixing cotton woven fabrics with knit fabrics to give you the fit and look of a traditional hoodie with the myriad of print options that are available in your favorite quilting collections.
That woven placket at the zipper has the added advantage of making it much easier to sew in the zipper, too!
Finally, I designed the pockets, placket and back panel with a modern curve.The lower panel on the back is a perfect spot to feature a fussy-cut fabric, too. (This one makes me smile every time I see it!)This pattern covers sizes 12 months to 14. Other features include fold-up cuffs for extra growing room and the option of the elasticized or standard hood. I hope this one becomes a favorite for you and your little ones!The Hide ‘n Go Seek Hoodie PDF Pattern is available for $2 off of the regular price today and tomorrow only: Click Here to Purchase, and you can enter to win a free copy in the Rafflecopter below.

Have you heard about the Designer’s Challenge yet? I am so excited to get to be a part of the very first one! Over the next month, each designer in the challenge will release a unique new PDF pattern that is somehow outside of her normal comfort zone. As each new pattern is released, you’ll be able to read all about the pattern, the designer’s challenges with it and have a chance to win that pattern on the Pattern Revolution Blog.
Each Friday of the challenge, I’ll share the patterns that were released that week here on my blog. It’ll be a great re-cap for those of you who don’t have time to check in at PR each day. (Really, though, if you don’t check in there each day, you won’t have a chance to win since the giveaways only last one day!) I’m up on December 4th with a new pattern that I think you are going to love! I wish I could give you a little hint, but I’m sworn to secrecy until my release date. I promise that it’ll be worth the wait!
