Here's my daughter's coat from Vegbee's new pattern.  I'm so excited!  I received my pattern on Thursday afternoon and made this on Friday.  I couldn't wait!!  As you can see, I haven't added the buttons yet.  I haven't decided whether I want to do covered buttons or what color to go with if I don't.  Any suggestions?  I made this out of twill for the shell and quilting cotton from Hancock's for the lining.  I'm not sure if the color is very true to life, but it's a dark plum color with a colorful candy "filling".   Wink I'm not sure the colors really go together, but oh well...  it's done and she's thrilled!  There have been so many cute kid coats on here lately, and I couldn't wait to jump on the bandwagon.  I have two older daughters who want coats too now.  I think I might try to increase the pattern size since it only fits up to a size 4.  I don't know whether I'm actually capable of such a thing, but I might have to try...  Does anyone have any tips on that?? 




Here's a poor shot of the covered buttons I FINALLY finished.  My camera is having a hard time getting a shot of the fabric on the buttons, but it's individual "candies" from the lining.  I'll try to get a better picture in the sunlight tomorrow. 


Well, I tried last night and again this morning and I just can't get a good shot of the buttons up close.  Poo!!

the color combo is great. I love this. I think some bright buttons to match the lining would look neat... let us know what you decide for them.

That is super cute! I love the fabrics - that lining is *fun*!! Ditto the comment about colorful buttons to match the lining.

I may have to get that pattern.....

Thanks for the compliments!  I love the lining fabric and so does my girly.  She was disappointed when she realized that the fun fabric would be on the inside though.   Cheesy

It's as much fun to scare as to be scared.
