The weekend is here, so lets have some fun!

You all know Shauna of the Shwin & Shwin team…right???

The fabulous site that is always bringing us the latest and most fashionable clothing tutorials…

Well, recently Shauna contacted me with the most generous idea
of having a giveaway that coincides with the release of her newest pattern
for Shwin Designs.


You didn’t know Shwin & Shwin now has their own Pattern line?!!

Well, let me introduce you…

A couple of months ago Shwin Designs released their very first pattern for sale…

The Abbey Jacket.

Let’s just say, I fell in love.

So to answer your question, YES – I do buy and make things from patterns as well! If there is a pattern that I simply must have, like this one, I am all for it! I fully support people who make and sell patterns. The amount of work that goes into creating a fully graded pattern and digitizing it for sale is incredible, and my hat goes off to those who put in that time and effort. The second I got my grubby little mitts on this particular Abbey Jacket pattern, I was all over making one for Madeline…

After that, Shauna released her next Pattern. This one came from a design she made during Season 1 of Project Run & Play, The Sweet Little Miss Jacket

Not only do I remember when I first saw this jacket on PR&P, but I totally voted for it! I loved it from the start!

And now her latest release has me swooning yet again, and this time it is for the BOY :)

Introducing the Jude Jacket by Shwin Designs

Here is where it is good to have friends in high places, because she totally let me try it out! YEAH!!! I was so excited to get my hands on this design, that I immediately made one for an adorable little boy I knew…

Nathan loves his new jacket, so much so that I couldn’t get him to stand still for one second during this photo shoot! HA! The entire session was done with the camera in ‘Sports’ mode. And I thought my girls were active…lol.

The pattern was super easy to put together, with easy to follow instructions. I made mine using a pair of thrifted navy khakis, and it came out awesome! The best part? It took me less than a couple of hours to put together! Yeah for easy designs!!!
