For No Good Reason: A Giveaway
Only reason? We received a second copy from this awesome new thing we discovered. (I say ‘thing’ because there’s really no other way to describe it). Anyway, we love this story & can’t think why anyone wouldn’t! And there’s a song to boot.

Joseph had a Little Overcoat is a story that reminds us all not to take what we have for granted, and gives us motivation to upcycle what may even seem like trash–what a terrific lesson to teach our young’uns. You’ll probably recognize the illustration style of Simms Taback from his other children’s classics. We love searching for his recurring characters…

So. Just comment here and I’ll pick a winner, let’s say…Valentine’s day! perfect.

    No, not my pattern. 🙂

    I did the back differently, though.
    Joined to the round and kept the lace panels throughout the decreases rather than doing that whole pin-tuck thing.

    I *love* that book! 😉
