Last summer, I was looking for a pattern for a hooded jacket that would be good to wear in the fall and spring.  I found just what I was looking for by A Little More Effect Pattern Company, 10736-124 Street, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada T5M OH1.  It’s called A Quilter’s Hoodie #0351. 

I chose flannel fabric and a flannel lining to get the warmth I wanted for early spring/fall temperatures and liked the pockets and zipper opening.

I didn’t quilt the jacket at all but used the coordinating fabrics to good advantage and I liked the way it turned out.  It’s very comfortable.

I entered the jacket in the sewing division of the Warren County (Ohio) Fair and won a blue ribbon.

As I usually do when I make jackets, I used leftover fabric to make a small purse to carry in quilt shops, antique shows, etc., where I don’t want to haul around a heavy purse.
