Contest Winners, Skirts, Websites to See, and a SALE

I had my husband draw names for me today for the Cape pattern!!  I will blog about the winners of the pattern testing soon!  I sent emails to the winners, and hope to hear from them soon.  As far as the name, FANTASTIC IDEAS!!  I can't decide, so I will keep you posted on which one I go with.  I will have to get the girls together to choose between the ideas.  I can't do it alone, I love them all!

Now I want to tell you about my newest pattern!  I had the chance to make this pattern inspired by and for Frances with Designing Twining.  It was so much fun to work with her.  We have alot in common with each other, and had a blast working together.  I love to brainstorm with people!!  Frances has a fantastic website, go check it out.  She has been sewing for over 10 years, has fantastic cutomer service skills(I should know!), and she LOVES what she does.  Frances teaches sewing lessons, and sewing custom clothing for everyone in the family.  She is there for you!
Below are some pictures from Designing Twining website.  There are so many more things to see, go to her site and check them out!

Last but not least!  For the next week only, this skirt will be on sale to help welcome it out!  Instead of paying the regular price of $6.50 for my patterns, you will pay only $4.50!  This is only for one week, I will take the sale off Monday the 28th in the morning.  Go to my shop and get it now!
Thank you to everyone who was willing to sew the Cape pattern.  This was the Best turnout for one of my pattern contests.  I was so excited about that, THANK YOU!  My husband thinks that I should have more people test the next pattern.

CLOSED Cape? Needing a New Name and PATTERN TESTERS

PATTERN TESTERS!!  This is one pattern that has been on my mind for a long time now, but had to be put on the back burner because of other things.  My daughter has worn it only this one time, and didn't want to even take it off.  She thinks it is fantastic.
Coat has a ruffle collar with 2 button closure.  Slits in the side for arms to come out or stay inside.  Fully lined with batting in the middle to stay warm.
This Coat, Cape, Cloak, I am not sure what to call it yet, needs a name and pattern testers.  Anyone, whether you sew on not, please come up with a cuter way to say cape!!  I am looking for name ideas so give me what you got!
And of course I want testers!!  I will have 2 winners again!!!  You get the pattern for free, and it is sent to your email address. I just need the pattern completed within 1 week of you receiving it, and all the critics you are willing to give. I will end the contest at midnight in one week, on Sunday, February  20th.  Leave me a way to get a hold of you in your comments, and I will let you know if you are one of the winners.
