25. And the winner is...

Not me :(

Ok that wasn't too surprising as the competition was tough!

The winner definitely deserved to win.  Check this out:

It even has a name : 'Lekaloru' Coat.  Congratulations to Sandra.

My favourite was Tamie K's top, which was one of 5 special entries to win $100 Tessuti gift voucher.

Now back to the winning Coat - the really awesome thing is that it is made up of 3 different patterns: Sewaholic's Minoru Jacket, Lekala 4170 and Green Pepper 120.  I have never heard of Lekala or Green Pepper but their patterns look really good and excellent value too!

Green Pepper is mainly outdoor clothing -raincoats, jackets, overpants - and they only ship paper patterns (3 patterns max for $US18.95 - gulp) but their kids range may be worth the effort.  Patterns hover around $US6.

Lekala also has their own website (they are also on Craftsy)which is full of print at home patterns and they all seem to be $US2.49.  They also have free patterns which included this shirt pattern.  It also sounds too good to be true but you send them your measurements and they send the pattern sized for you!  I am going to try this out with the shirt pattern - it is free after all.
