    This is a great zip-up hoodie. The color blocking works out great for guys and girls. The size range is very helpful if you have lots of sizes to sew for like I do. This makes up easily if you are an experiences beginner or intermediate sewist. This makes up into a beautiful hoodie and the kids love it!!

    I have gotten to test the Aulavik zip-up and it fast became my son's favorite, so I had to sew an extra one. I made mine in FT and quilted jersey and they are so nice. The pattern has great descriptions, but do make sure to read it all before you start, there are a few tricky places, but it is well worth the effort

    This jacket came together so well each step of the way. The tutorial is thorough and clear. Don't be worried about the zipper. Simply take it a step at a time and before you know it you have a great jacket! I also appreciate the extended sizing as it worked great for my 14 year old.

    I love everything about this pattern ! I made it for both my kids, it fits perfectly, the instructions are cristal clear and it is a good way to sew fleece for the winter days. I will have to try in FT for spring ! It even has a projector file so good in every point!

Meaning “place where people travel” in Inuvialuktun, Aulavik is one of Canada’s most remote National Parks, protecting nearly 12,000 square kilometers of lowland tundra at the north end of Banks Island in the Northwest Territories. 


Aulavik is home to the highest concentration of Muskoxen in the world, numbering over 10,000.  With wide-open landscape and the tallest plants reaching only ankle-height, this is pure tundra as far as the eye can see.  In the continuous sunlight of the short summer season in June-August, flowers carpet the ground in a patchwork of colour.
