The Red Jacket is the Free Flowing Cardigan Pattern:
Tuesday, December 12, 2017
I found Raincoat Lining or what might be some kind of Ski Jacket material in the Treasure Hunt Room of 2.97 a yard material.... I didn't have a raincoat... so I decided to make one.
I made the lining the day it snowed and wore the lining inside out... so I put pockets in the lining itself so I would have pockets that day
I turned under the edge all the way around hood and all-and top stitched it so I could wear it... Here it is the way it will be in the coat itself.
The Raincoat itself is kind of silver gray waterproof material found the same day in the Treasure Hunt Room at 2.97 a yard.
The Raincoat Pockets will be the insulated lining so it is soft and comfy when I put my cold wet hands in the pockets... Maybe I will have enough to make mittens... LOL
Pockets out of Insulated lining
I am going to try to make a strip like belting around the coat at waist height to drawstring and give it some added shape... A bit wider than it shows on the pattern.
Well, so it is a furry raincoat... Yes, I added fur, and I think I am going to do all of the edges... Pin test and then sew
Yes, on the cuff too, not quite this wide
Around the edges.... and then I will turn inside out and put the waistband along the back so I can have a little shape to the coat-- Remember the whole thing is reversible... one side silver and one side brownish black
Belting just at the back from seam to seam but a loose piece that I can overlap and hook or tie... maybe grommets and ratail or bolo cord through the grommets..
Inserted Elastic into the belting and put DRings on the end... Belting done...
Raincoat DONE and Reversible with Pockets in both sides
One side Silver the other side Dark Brown.
I made Straight Loose Sleeves with no Cuffs and extended the bottom to a straight edge for more of a raincoat look but short coat to be able to get in and out of the car. With this fabric combination - this pattern with a few adjustments worked great for me.

I Love to Spread the news that YOU can sew too.
I don't do anything complicated. I don't have a serger or a fancy sewing machine. My machine is over twenty hears old and I have a back up sewing machine that is the same. I sew every day unless I am sick. If I don't sew then when I do I sew twice as much. It makes me feel good.
You can only do so much scrapbooking - LOL
The scrapbook cabinet is in the background...HaThis one ended up with a blanket..LOL
Or you scrapbook a pin... Yep thats me in the middle
Even a tiny pin that is quilted I can put on my lapel or a cross stitch pin. Then I feel confident for the day.
picture from my kayak...see my paddle
Sometimes you see things next to your kayak... YEP that is a giant turtle.
I walked to the end of Cape Hatteras one vacation and saw where the Ocean and the Sound Meet-I felt like I was on the edge of the world
I laid out on the beach as the sun came up and it was spectacular
I don't just sew, but nature inspires me to wear beautiful colors
Write Your Ideas down and....
So Sew along with me-This is a minkie Blanket designed by me...'The Lone Kayaker'
