Hannah's New Wool Coat


I got around to sewing Hannah's coat much sooner than I thought. Yesterday Erik stayed home from work feeling very sick and since he had taken over the couch I sequestered myself in the kitchen and sewed. I didn't feel sick but I didn't feel well enough to do much of anything but since sewing only requires that I use my brain and my hands and feet all the while sitting at my sewing machine I figured it could still be deemed "resting". And so I sewed. Hannah's coat turned out cute and she really likes it so I won't launch into everything I wish I'd done differently but I will say that I didn't like the pattern, the way it was written or the way you were suppose to sew it together. This coat will probably be one of a kind and the pattern will get stuck in my pattern box until I've forgotten the headache it gave me. Ivan now wants a coat though and since I have the wool and a pattern his will come soon, I think. At least his pattern promises to be easy to sew.

Gorgeous. Truly. Despite everything. She'll treasure that. Wish I had one! But red I think. :-) Or green.
