mad about plaid

Lookee what became of those hand warmer scraps:

meet my quirktastically cool new jacket!

Here’s what I did:

I snagged this almost-forgotten-well-worn corduroy jacket from the storage room

slipped the remaining front of the hand warmer coat over top of it & checked the fit

removed the zipper & chopped the front panels to size

pinned them onto the front

DSCF8194

and carefully stitched them on

as the fabric beside the zipper was too thick for my poor retro machine to get through, I machine sewed as close to the edge as possible & then securely blanket stitched the thick sides together using a funky green embroidery thread

I freaking love my ‘new’ jacket!

waddaya think?

all the tutes!
