April showers

April showers

Posing with an umbrella on a sunny day!

I made a coat! Well, the Kwik Sew children's raincoat (pattern 3941) anyway. After making a few things for the kids recently I fancied a new challenge. The pattern itself was quite straightforward (once I'd got my head around the construction of the lining). The fabric was more challenging - glossy soft PVC in royal blue combined with mini daisy flower print polycotton in royal blue. I also had fun getting to grips with some new tools (Prym Love pliers) :-)

Read all about how I got on with this one, and the tips and tricks I've learnt along the way over on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network.

If anyone else fancies giving this one a try I'd love to know how you got on!

Happy sewing,
