Not all done...

Hope springs eternal as they say - so does that give hope for the duffelcoat?? I'm still not all done, but I'm getting there!

I only need to sew on the many press studs, which I have decided to have on the backside of the jacket. I want the studs to be invisible, and easy for a 3 year old to button. The big buttons are actually just there for the sake of appearances.

I didn't put on the usual duffelcoat closing device - I think that it might seem a bit clumsy on such a small size coat.

In the left pocket I fastened a Gingham bias tape in which I tied a reflector tag. Then there's no excuse not to be seen in the dark - and I hope our little fellow might think that it's fun to have a ghost in his pocket...

Now I'm curious to know whether it's fits....and whether the colour is well received!

P.S. Maybe I can sew a brown hat to go with the duffelcoat...with a ghost embroidery in front of it!

  1. Hvor er den sød!!!
    Og genialt med spøgelset i lommen - er det velcro, den er sat fast med?

  2. Gisp.... hvor er den pæn! Jeg er imponeret over din tålmodighed, jeg ville være eksploderet af frustration og raseri over hætten, lommerne, den stikning bag på jakken, som SKAL være snor-lige osv. Hold da op, hvor er den blevet vellykket!

  3. Du er simpelthen så dygtig, Ulla, jeg er så fuld af respekt for nogen, der kan lave sådan et smukt stykke håndarbejde.

    Idéen med refleksen er rigtig god, ingen undskyldning for ikke at lyse i mørket...

  7. Mange tak, Annette :0) Nu håber jeg bare at modtageren - vores lille fætter Thorbjørn - kan li' den!!

    Nej, det er ikke velcro - det er bare et skråbånd som jeg har syet sammen. Derefter har jeg syet det fast nede i lommen ;0)

    ..........

    1000 tak, Rosanna - det er jeg virkelig glad for at du synes :0))
    Min tålmodighed har været sat på prøve kan du lige tro! Der har været en søm eller to der er blevet pillet op pga. "slinger i valsen" - og så var der jo ikke mindst de drilske lommer!

    ...........

    Mange tak for det, Anne. Det var flotte og søde ord - dem gemmer jeg i hovedet til en dag hvor alting driller :0))

    Jeg synes, at han skulle kunne ses i mørket, og måske synes at det var lidt sejt at have et spøgelse i lommen! Nu er jeg bare spændt på om det klarer en uldvask!! ;0)

    .............

    Mange tak, Tina :0)

    Børn er en rigtig god motivater til at sy - jeg synes også det bliver træls dén dag jeg ikke har nogle små - fætre og kusiner - at sy til!
    Men så har jeg måske nogle børnebørn ;0))

    At finde strikkepindene er mindst lige så skønt som at sy!! :0)

    Thank you very much, di - how sweet of you to say so :0) I sure hope that you are right!! I'm rather nervous about the color - the recieving family might think it too much!

    Thanks a lot, Christine. I love duffelcoats and I think it would be a great model for a 3 year old boy. I have always made duffelcoats for my own children when they were younger...

  13. Thank you very much, Marie Grace! :0)
    I'm happy that so many of you like the color - I think it's suitable for a little boy (and it's one of my own favourite colors!) ;0)

    ...............

    Oh, thank you so much, Katherine :0))
    I wanted to put in a bit of Gingham as well - so it wasn't all green! And it gives the opportunity to use a brown hat along with the duffelcoat ;0)

    ...............

    Haha Claudia!! I would come to Montreal any day to teach you to sew, but you already have wonderful sewing skills. Which reminds me to tell you that I think your scarf is adoring....

    I hope your etsy shop is going well?

    Ulla :0)
