Rainy Vancouver Day Here Is What I Made
Some of you may know that I make and swap doll clothes on Swap-bot. It is one of my most favorite hobbies and this month we had a Sew From Your Stash Swap. This means we can not go out and buy fabric or notions for the swap we have to use what we have on hand and create something for our partners doll.
For my pattern I modified the Hooded Wizard Robe from Miche Designs and available from the Liberty Jane website for my coat swap.
I really liked how it turned out. I would also like to thank Skippy's Mom who sent me the fabric a few months back. Where I live we do not have access to the great patterns and fabric that my friends in the USA enjoy. I must remember to stop and pick some up in the next time I am in Washington State! This fabric is even water resistant! Perfect for the type of weather here in Vancouver.
I have to be honest and tell you I rarely need to wear a coat here except for the rain our weather is mild and for that I am thankful.
If you are over 18 and someone who loves to send and receive things in the mail check out Swap-bot by clicking here. It is fun to travel the world for the cost of a postage stamp...
I hope where ever you are today you have a wonderful day. Time to pack up this coat and mail it to my partner.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
