More leather… 

    Here I am laughing at my future again (Prov 31:25). 

    Another #onlyopshopleather purchase – this time a beautiful cream leather jacket for $15.00. 


    Also ‘Wrangler’ jeans, ‘Eagle’ belt, ‘Sportsgirl’ leather shoes and ‘Witchery’  T are all pre-loved. Total cost of outfit = $25.00. 

    So, what’s my point? 

    It is easy to leave a small footprint and a big impression.

    The Blanket Coat

    There are so many beautiful vintage woollen blankets at the Op Shops. All well washed and softened through use. My thought was to turn one into a felted winter coat. 

    Pink and dusty tones are currently popular so my first go involved an old pink blanket. 


    I’m happy with the first attempt. 

    Cost = $5.00 

    Time = 2 hours

    Why buy new?

    New Crochet Creation

    Last winter I crocheted the Loop Stitch Jacket, pictured in an earlier post and also below.

    I made it up as I went along (sorry pattern seekers)! To my surprise there are Loop Stitch Jackets turning up everywhere! Temt (a low priced fashion store in Australia) has them for $40 in black and cream!!!

    I have never followed the fashion trends and now it turns out I lead them!!!!! That’s my take anyway!

    So this winter is calling for more crochet goodness and I am experimenting with the bobble stitch. I am going to create a ‘Bobble Stitch Bomber Jacket’ with chunky zip.

    Here’s a sneak peek at the beginnings… In grey acrylic.
