Give it away, give it away, give it away now…

I bought this pattern a while back from Crafty Mamas, then forgot about it, then remembered, then forgot, then didn’t give the lovely owner my new address, then I did, and then it arrived last week and I can’t for the life of me think why I wanted it. I shall not make it. Not now, not ever. It’s not the sort of thing I would even kid myself about, and so, I’m giving it away.


It is the Alex jacket from Mamu Design; suitable for boys or girls from about 3months to 14 years!


The options seem endless – with hood, without hood, different types of hoods, with sleeves, without sleeves, with pockets… you get the idea… if only if my sewing skills corresponded with my aspirations!


To enter just leave a comment here telling me who you would make your first Alex for! If you are a very special yet obviously confused follower, leave another comment for another entry – I would have just picked randomly from you guys but what if, like me, you couldn’t make this in a pink fit?!


…and that’s it. You don’t need to blog about this, tweet about it, faff about on facebook or buy anything… but maybe you’d like to give away a pattern of your own you never got around to using? That would be nice, wouldn’t it?


  1. Oooh K would love that!!!! You know you could make it though :D You are a clever chicckie!!

  2. Wow, what a cute pattern with such a huuuge size range love that!!
    If i was luckily enough to win I'd make the first for my 5 year old Son, then I'd have to do one for my 2 year old girl so she wasn't left out :)

  3. Vic, I would make it for you hon! (the punk or the wee punk-to-be, your choice!)

  4. Dag, I am sure you could make it but seeing you dont I will take advantage and enter said giveaway. i'd make for my #2 son whos been eyeing off his big brothers dinosaur jumper with the scales down the back but didnt come in his size child.

  5. how lovely!! :) love the huge age range too. and i reckon it'll come in handy for me coz i've got 2 girls n a boy on the way. :D thanks for the giveaway, hun!

  6. Oh wow ... that's lots of options!!!
    I'd make a version for my almost four year old son first. His little sister has been getting lots of stuff lately so it is time he got something... and perhaps if I started it now it would actually be ready for next winter!!!

  7. You could make it but, I do know about looking at a pattern and being quite certain I will never ever make it. I've actually been planning to go through mine and offering them up to a giveaway or charity.

    Of course you know who I'd make it for...The Engineer! I'm thinking the dino version will be much appreciated at the office.

  8. Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean I'm not following you.

    I am!

  9. That is a very versatile pattern! So versatile, that I could potentially make something for all of my children out of it! But I suspect I would first be making a coat for my eldest daughter for next winter (yep, planning early!)

  10. I would make this for my middle grand daughter who is 5 years old, her name is Shae and she is lovely.

  11. I've never worked off a "real" pattern before, how exciting! If I won, I'd make it for my middle son, who, at the moment only seems to get hand me downs...poor lad!

  12. Just too cute!!! Not only is it boys and girls in the same pattern, but it will fit both my 9 yr old AND my 11 yr old, does it get any better than that? I have my fingers crossed!

  13. I just signed up as a follower :) But nope, I'm not confused yet, at least, I don't *think* so....

  14. Oooh that is a very cool pattern :) . I could outfit all the kids in it for another 7 years! I would make the first one for Mr2 though..and then Ms 5 and then Master 7 and then and then...although I agree with another commentor..you could make it :) .

  15. PS" I am a follower and I look forward to seeing your blog name pop up in my RSS feeder with a new post as visiting here always makes me smile :).


Let's have a chat. And a biscuit. And some tea. And another biscuit.
