first I want to point out Araneras lovely Giveaway, which she's hosting at the moment. Please take a look, she has made pretty and delicious looking cakes!
Than Mrs. Molly McBurrow told me that she wants to show you a new sewing tutorial. She sewed a coat for her son Muddy and was kind enough to show us the steps. I promised to publish it here.
So, you need:
fabric (felt is perfect)
hook and loop fastener
buttons or other decorations
Cut one pattern, which should look like this.
The size depends on your figure. Measure the length and width of the arm, add some seam allowance. Also measure the length from shoulder to feet and figure out the width from shoulder to shoulder.
Transfer the pattern to the fabric, you should get this pieces:
Now just lay the two front parts on the back and sew around the edges.
Turn around and add a small stripe of fabric - this will be the belt.
Add your hook and loop fastener and some buttons.
Heres Muddy wearing the coat :D.
I hope you had fun with the tutorial!
Read you soon,
