Another project that I done when on annual leave from work in June. This is made from a recycled woollen blanket lined with satin and with floral cotton and piping, I made this for my 6yr old granddaughter, its very cold and we are in the middle of winter here in Australia especially in Tasmania the Southern island state.

Anyway she loves it just as much as I do.

Beautiful Duffle Coat. My Husband had one when we met his Mum had made it from a blanket as well. That was more than 50 years ago. She did it out of necessity now it is trendy to do it.
You have made it so lovely and hopefully big enough for it to fit for a few years as it will out last shop bought that is for sure.

Thanks, recycling these lovely blankets into jackets is quite big in the Australian sewing circle at present.

What a beautiful coat....It will keep her warm and toasty, both the fabric with which it was made and the love that you put into it...
