I don't buy too many craft books these days. Between our awesome local library system (hello, iPhone app), and the interwebs, there just isn't much in the craft books that I deem purchaseable. And maybe I've become a bit of a skinflint (well, not really). But even when my coworker, a pretty amazing person, released a pretty amazing book, I didn't even buy that. But I had some time to kill yesterday, and found myself at the bookstore in front of this book written by the drafter of super adorable patterns for wee ones. One of which was the hood that I adapted for Bear's Little Red Riding Hood costume last Halloween. And what's included in the book? A full-on sugar-and-spice sweet pattern for a red riding hood cape, tucked in among the most classic-cute designs I've ever seen. So, yeah, I bought it.
