Percy's new winter coat.

I've just finished sewing Percy this winter coat, and am pretty happy with it. I've been doing a bit of sewing lately for the Handmade Kids Clothing Swap 2014, and while making clothes for Alyna kids, I felt Percy needed something too! So I decided a winter coat would be a good idea. I snapped one sewing needle, and had a small moment of panic that my machine was dead, but I ended up sorting myself out, and getting it finished. I plan to work on one for myself now. Here's some pics..









I used a opshopped vintage woolen blanket and lined it with some very cute retro kids fabric. The buttons were from a cardi of mine I chucked out ages ago. 

How are you keeping warm this winter???

See you soon, hopefully with a pic of Percy in his new coat.

    1. Its annoying, so many needles snapped. It's probably because I get impatient too! xx

  3. Percy's new coat is just the cutest.
    Now that I've made my vest from a blanket, a jacket is on my wish list too, I'm just on the lookout for the perfect pattern.
