22 KCWC fall 2012 pt.1

It's that time of the year again folks!
Twice a year, Meg does a fabulous job hosting one of the most fun challenges in the blogger-net. This fall, I decided to take a stab at making a coat for Lala and man-oh-man... can I just tell you how much I am in LOVE.
LOVE I tell ya!
L-O-V-E.

Pattern:


Outershell: Echino Forest fabric

Innershell: Flannel in oatmeal 
Notions: 4 recycled buttons

The pattern is uber easy. I was amazed just how fast I whipped this baby up. My only complaint is that I wish it came in preteen-adult sizes.*boo!*

Lala was a trooper taking pics. Fall isn't quite here yet. She managed to wear the coat just long enough for me to take some snaps.
When fall does decide to get here, look out! With this jacket, some boots and a scarf... she'll be the cat's meow on our block!
Lala's coat?
Check!
One done on my list...

    1. You can totally make this for your boys. The actual cover page for the pattern has a boy wearing the pea coat. I think it will look sah-weet in tweed...
