We’re going a little backward with the seasons this week with a felt jacket for spring, or any other season that needs some extra warmth, really. It’s so easy, you can quickly make a few in different colors for each season. Alternatively, make it in a neutral color and use the same jacket for all seasons. This week’s pattern also includes instructions to give it a springy touch with a rickrack flower pin that would also look nice on a hat or headband.
The jacket came from a modified version of this one:
You know how with your craft projects things don’t always go as planned?
The beginning of this outfit was me trying to digitize a very simple, quick little flower as machine embroidery to decorate the felt jacket. Circles are about as easy as it gets, and I quickly made a few little circular flowers and arranged them in a pleasing way. Then it came time to choose the colors… pastels for spring? While that would’ve been the logical choice to go with the rest of this post, all the beautiful autumn colors outside my window were irresistible. And then while I was working on it, someone sent me this pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/241364861255359480/ and my few simple flowers on a jacket turned into an embroidered vest and a skirt border, and eventually became this harvest outfit.
