Year of the Rooster

I couldn't find a Year of the Rooster design I liked so I adapted one I found at La Comtesse & Le Point de Croix, adding a small chinese lantern to make this New Year decoration.


And here I am wearing the snuggly new jacket I made at the weekend, using a sherpa backed faux suede fabric and a free pattern from Simply Sewing magazine. Just the thing as the weather has turned cold and damp.

Both the finishes look great ! It must be difficult to sew a thick fabric.

That is the perfect design for the New Year. Do you do one each year?
