How to sew a coat - and Araneras Giveaway

Dear Readers,

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)
yarn
hook and loop fastener
buttons or other decorations

Step 1

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.



Finished! :)

Heres Muddy wearing the coat :D.


I hope you had fun with the tutorial!

Read you soon,

Yours Kyra

  6. Thank you so much for this tutorial. It makes sense to use a felt type of fabric for sewing because the seam allowance is so tiny that I don't know how to make clothes for my small Sylvanians!

    1. Exactly that was my problem, it's so hard to find out the right seam allowances and secure the edges in the same time... maybe t-shirt fabric could also work... :D glad you like it :) It's my pleasure :)
