Am I a little late to the Christmas presents show off? That might be the case, but truth is, you can’t show presents befor the receiver opened it!

My dad like to cycle/mountainbike in his spare time. The moment I saw the pattern for a retro cycling jacket by la famille Victor, I knew what his Christmas present was going to be…

La famille Victor is a Belgian pattern company that specialises in quality patterns with good instructions. They try to work as eco-friendly as possible. Every pattern has a cute story about a family member of the Victor Family.
Their website is packed with patterns, information, tutorials  and stories about their patterns.

I made the SUPERIA cycling jacket as worn by Richard Victor.

So here is the result (pictures taken with the Ipad in a dark space but they exist)

My dad was very proud, so I’m  very happy I put in the effort to make something for him this year.
Hurray for handmade Christmas!
