Whenever I go to the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, I get really crafty and inspired. One of my favorite pieces in the Japanese section is a very tall wooden seated figure, with giant wooden flames behind him. So placid, yet so fiery. That's what gave me the idea for this jacket.

I pimptasticified a regular baby pattern by making it with green fur and adding orange polar fleece applique around all edges. Freehanded the flames: cut them out first, pinned them to the already-cut-out green fur, and sewed them with zigzag stiches using invisible thread. Because the fur+plus+fleece combo was extremely thick, I actually cut away the green fur under the orange flames after doing the applique, before proceeding to add the lining of yellow broadcloth.

I didn't do a tutorial or anything -- just followed the pattern and embellished a bit. I've made other jackets from Butterick 6782, too. It's a good pattern, if you have lots of breeder friends.

I MUST make a green fur jacket for my baby... She will wear it, and the world will fall at her feet in adoration  MWAHAHAHAHA!

Or I could just come to your house and steal yours.  That is the coolest freakin' piece of clothing ever created, seriously.

That is SO CUTE!!! I see a LOT of cute things on this site, but I can't believe how cute this is. I would love to see a kid's store carrying stuff like this. I can imagine the other kids on the playground being either really afraid of the kid in it or really friendly with the kid in it. Monsters inc kinda sweatshirt.
Brilliant idea. Warm and flamy.

Wow. If I ever have a baby I would definitely make that! Have to learn to sew first though...
