That is so cute!  What a great pattern you made - love the fabric and the big buttons.

When I'm sewing thick stuff I make sure I have a heavy weight needle and sometimes using heavier thread helps, too.

ooh i love it!! i love all your coats. too bad your monkey's a bit smaller than mine, otherwise i'd hunt you down and steal one while you weren't looking Wink i'd love a pattern or tute if yo have time!

I shouldn't be telling you this but I feel safe on the other side of the ocean... it's a bit big for dd, fits 3yr old ds like a glove!  Grin

lol i dunno, the uk isn't THAT big...and dd is in 3ts now... Wink

maybe i won't turn international stalkerish if you post a pattern. or make me a tester if you're going to make it to sell Cheesy

now if only i lived near ikea still. le sigh. we had TWO in chicago. zilch-o for states and states now...

I just bought this same fabric, it did not occur to me to make clothing out of it Cheesy

Unfortunately, you've hit the heavy duty limit of your sewing machine. Not all machines are created equal and most folks hit what you've run into here at some point or another. It's like trying to tow a yacht with a Mini Cooper, just not going to go well. Most people don't think of clothing construction as heavy duty, but jeans, coats & often period costumes are, even if they are being made in childrens sizes. Hand cranking instead of using the pedal is the safest way to use an underpowered or average machine on a heavy duty project.

Great stuff! Good luck on the rest of the set!

Such a cute little coat.  I am still pretty new to sewing clothing but I hope to be able to do something like this at some point.  I just love it.  Loved the green one too! Smiley

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

my machine has a feed drop tap for thicker fabrics like quilts. maybe yours has something simular.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.
