Today I made the coat from a fabulous vintage car rug.
Here’s how I did it.
With right sides together, Stitch shoulder seams first. Stay stitch back neck edge to keep it from stretching. I do not finish blanket coat fabric edges as they are felted up enough to minimize fraying. If needed you can ‘stay-stitch’ all raw edges.
After shoulder seams, stitch sleeves at shoulders. Then finish with side seams ensuring the plaid matches all the way down the sides.
In less than an hour you have a beautiful warm coat made by recycling an old blanket.
Maybe a bomber jacket👊🏼💪🏼!
