Hi! I've been wanting to make a nice coat, but I sure do not want to mess up the first time and waste expensive wool or some other sort of fabric. I always see awesome colors of felt on huge rolls at my local Jo-Ann's, and I was wondering if it would be weird to make a coat out of it? It looks similar to wool, but definitely is not wool haha. I know the elbows would probably get stretched out?

I wouldn't do it, it would end up looking terrible really quickly. Maybe do a toile out of calico or another cheap fabric first.
