Little Lumberjack Jacket
Every now and then, if you're an avid sewer (and perhaps even if you're not) you'll come across a length of fabric that just begs to be made into a very special project. I received a bundle of unwanted items from my Grandma's extensive stash. As soon as I saw this red plaid wool blend, I knew what I had to do.
Rowan needed a lumberjack jacket.
And it had to have a fuzzy, faux sheepskin hood.
And lined with brown houndstooth flannel.
I used The Urban Hoodie as the base for this project with several modifications. I'm pretty sure I want to make this jacket again next year, and when I do...the hood will be bigger. It is, as my friend Jenn would call it, a 'show hood'. Meaning it looks great, but does not preform its required hood duties.
Even still, it's cute. I like it.
Happy December 1st! Today is Christmas decorating day at our house. Except, we're kind of busy, so I'm not sure if it will get done. Perhaps I'll hang a wreath so I don't feel entirely defeated :)
