Drsue, I purchased minky yardage from (I think) and then cut it into strips (2 inches wide for the hood and hem, and 1 inch for the piping). I find minky locally in most quilting shops. It worked great for binding since it is a knit and tends to curl to the wrong side.

That jacket is really cute! I think you did a fabulous job making this. You've inspired me to pull out my pattern and try my hand at this.

Another winner from this pattern! I'll be trying this one soon, so thank you for recommending basting at the pivot point. Will do!

The photo link shows up as broken. :( And when I click on it anyway, it just takes me to the main page for photobucket, not to your photo.
