Several, several years ago...in addition to quilts, I made a really cute coat for Kayla, the first grand child. I actually made her mittens to go with hers. I don't have any digital pictures of Kayla's coat but it was adorable and so cute on her.
When Amber was born I couldn't wait to make her this coat too! At the time, the kids didn't have a dog so we put a picture of our dog, Mandy on her coat! And, yes, those are my feet on the bottom of the picture and Gigi's head on the top left!
This was a pattern on display at our local quilt shop and I thought adorable! When I was at the kids a few weeks ago, I saw Amber had the coat hung on her closet door. I took pics while the kids were at school but I forgot to ask why she had it out.
This is the back...isn't it cute!! The flowers are fabric pulled through the coat...if I remember correctly. Seems to me I gave this pattern away but I don't remember who got it!
This is the inside of the coat.
It's hard to tell in the photo but that little square fabric with the teddy bear is for putting a name card in it! I love the Jack and Jill fabric for the lining too! Oh the memories...one being Amber never wanted to wear it! HA I still think it's adorable and I hope they pack it away and keep just to keep!!! Yes, I am too sentimental!
