Making a Coat with some Leftover fur and Minky

I improvised using this pattern for guide, but didn't have enough fabric so I had to randomly piece some of it. 

 I have these three pieces of Fabric to use

Many fun and sooo soft and warm Faux Furs at 

Sleeves for one side are done...

This is the back of the Jacket with the sleeves laying against it so I can see how that combo will look

I have a scarf I love to wear, because it is sooo soft and warm..

I love this scarf, so hopefully, I can make a coat to match it, with the leftovers..

This is side one... I made two coats by sewing the scraps together... improvised on the pattern, because I didn't have enough of any one fabric to complete as it was on the pattern...I love this coat... it is lightweight and I can wear either side..

Side two...

One coat but two sewn together so it was reversible.  I did this by sewing the two coats and sewing the two together all the way around with right sides together and leaving a small opening at the bottom so I could flip it.

I then had to topstitch all the way around to give it a  more finished look.

This is the softest lightest weight fur ever... and the other two fabrics were minky and it was the same weight.   Thanks for the many compliments today.

Two pieces of leftovers went to fingerless gloves, so I could feel the steering wheel when driving
Just sew the slots into the tube the size of your hands so your fingers and thumb each have a channel...(I don't like to be cold)

Still had some leftovers and an old purse that I was going to throw away... took all the rings and zippers off of it and made this purse.. totally lined and top zip plus middle zip on both sides... left over pleather made the strapping.  The top side panel is a kayaking sunrise printed on a velvet, I had left over from some pillows, shown below.

This is the opposite side.  The strap is adjustable with a purse slide or you can use D rings.

I still have enough little pieces to make a clutch like this...

Matched the purple jacket

Matched the Black Fur Coat I Made
Now to make one to match the crazy fur quilted jacket

I was working on the wing chair, but got distracted to the coat... and maybe a pillow, maybe a little guitar.

The problem is the chairs are beckoning me to sit on them and then I take a break and don't get anything done!....
I am going I am going!  - with the new filler they are sooooooo comfortable... and the leftover fabric can make a tablecloth for the little table and cover some boxes to get more organized here.... sooo fun!

Made the pillow... now making a bigger one for the Sofa.... same fabric... sooo soft-invisible zipper at the bottom

If there is enough time, I am going to try to make either a blouse to wear tomorrow, or an outfit.

I have to wash my hair.... so, 
1.  I will cut out the coat(Jacket)... 
2.  wash my hair... 
3.  sew the pillow and then sew the jacket and
4.   see what time it is...
5.  Try to make something to wear under the Jacket that is new...
6.  and some Faux Fur leg warmers.... with some velcro and elastic... quick and easy....

Gotta Use these Leftovers...!

These chairs are making my creative mind- just go wild.....  Loving the fabrics...!!!!

Don't tell me you don't have enough time to sew.. I don't have enough time to drive around to stores and not find what I want.
