A coat for my first Sew Hip post

This is my first SH post – sorry about that, long time coming. I will try to do better! I’m adding this one now because I’ve just finished making the coat from a blanket, destined for issue 38, on sale end Jan so this is a sneak preview. And I’m feeling quite pleased with myself for having got it done. What started as  a poncho challenge for the team, turned into a coat for me! The result is a long Navaho style coat – because of the jacquard weave of the blanket. It took about 2.30 hours in total so was a quick and easy make too. This snapshot doesn’t do it justice and it will look better in the magazine – but for that you will have to wait and see.
