A Coat for Max

 A few months ago, I found a little coat for my 3 year old at Old Navy. It was so cute but I really didn't want to pay $40 for it. So I decided to try and sew one (which is something I never thought I would attempt)! I was about to donate one of my old coats to DI since I didn't use it anymore but I decided to hang on to it and make this one for Max.
First I took one of his jackets and used it as a pattern. After cutting it out, I decided that I didn't really like the color of my coat for Max. So I decided to cover each piece in gray, ha, using my mom's old windbreaker pants. Crazy, I know...but it was the only gray fabric I had and I liked the pockets and red accents on it:)
 I ended up using the pants pockets on the sleeves.

  It ended up being a little more work than I was planning on, mostly because I had to cover each piece of the coat. But I really ended up liking the gray!



  1. You MADE the coat?! When I saw the pictures before I read about it, I thought it was the coat you were going to COPY! Holy cow, Kristianne, you are SO talented.

  2. I would never guess you made this. Great job !!
