For the fabric, I chose a navy blue corduroy for the outside, and a soft grey fleece for the liner. Both fabrics were upcycled, the corduroy being a former duvet cover, and the fleece a little baby blanket. I love giving cloth a second life!
The sleeves and the inside of the hood are the same striped jersey fabric that I had used for Alix’s dress a few months ago. Some blue and orange pieces of felt were used for the hearts, and a little blue button was sewn on top of the flap (which actually closes with velcro – much easier for little Nate who is just learning to dress himself… and much faster for parents too!)
And here is sweet little Nate sporting his new jacket! Thanks Natasha for the amazing pictures… he looks darling! And I’m so happy to see that the jacket fits just right!
This kid is just soooooooo cute!!!! In French, we say “Il est croquable!”, which translates to “He is bite-able”…. I know, kind of a weird thing to say in English, but I think you get what I mean!
