News Flash: Independent Pattern Designers - Add Insult to Injury...

... just when I thought I could stop lusting over independent patterns - look what's being released tomorrow by Closet Case Files
I was able to far-go her Morgan Jean pattern; and from time to time I still wrestle with my frugal inner self over her Carolyn Pajama pattern.  However, I think it might a be a little tossing and turning tonight caused by Heather Lou's new Kelly Anorak jacket pattern. You best believe I'm going to present a strong case to frugal inner self over this one, because I've wanted something like this in my life for a long, long time.  I don't know if it's Sallie O's  illustrations or Heather's actual pattern designs that grab my attention so strongly. Although I don't have a little puppy to take for a walk, I can already see myself wearing this jacket on a Winnie the Pooh type blustery winter day in the misty rain and falling leaves.  You get the picture right...

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks of Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day on days like that.
    I kind of wish you hadn't shown that pattern because now I want it too!

    1. No Orymonster, you are not alone! I love those WP kind of days that usually happens in November around Thanksgiving or early December for me. Oh how I love misty rainy days! So for showing the pattern, just couldn't help myself...

  6. LOVE this. I tracked down a McCalls one that I liked but I've been scared to cut it because I haven't worked with jacket hardware that would go into an anorak. So I've been waiting to make it.

    But now that I see THIS, I will probably get it because Heather always does amazing hand holding through her patterns and I know the instructions will be great.

    I actually have both sizes of the mccalls 6531 (oop) anorak. If you fall into the larger size (L and up) I can send it to you! That's if you don't fall into the trap of this one lol

  7. You think you can swear off something, and then a new shiny thing arrives in front of your eyes, and BOOM! You're hooked! I hope you can make this jacket for your Winnie the Pooh days!

  8. That's a great design. Anorak's can be interpreted in so many ways and I don't think one can ever have enough. I like Simplicity 2153 for mine, very similar but with zip down the front. Can't wait to see what you do with this.
