Don't some blazers like that already have interfacing inside?  I was thinking I wouldn't have to iron on any additional.  I've not yet inspected the inside of the one I have in mind, though...

I showed your post to a guy friend and he could not believe it could be done... So he insisted that I should make him a bag out of a coat...

Found a neat houndsooth print at the thrift store for $2 - I sort of did a half-a**'d pattern myself and was sure to cut the pieces so I could use the pockects from the coat on the new bag.....

I put the final touches today... So I'm sure my friend will be thrilled when he stops by later....



Thanks for posting your project!

thank you for all your wonderful words!
and great job on the bag rox, im sure your friend will be impressed.

and to dragornaked: maybe some coats have interfacing inside? im not exactly sure, i guess you would just have to look before hand.

my bag has been holding up well, although there have been a few small places where the seam has split, but i think that's because i'm rough with it and it's been carrying around my very heavy schoolbooks. and i knew i shouldve sewn the seams twice! but i was too lazy. oh well.

i was completely in love with this idea, so my friend and i went to value village and it was memorial day so i got my coat half off, and i only paid a little over a dollar i think, but after i seam ripped, even though it was a large coat, the pieces all seem to be too small, like i would have to sew them back together to make it. Embarrassed  what really did i do wrong here, and did you seam rip everything or leave some things sewed together? help?

if i can remember correctly i think i ripped everything except the main seam down the middle of the back of the coat. i think everything else was ripped though.
