Orange Coats: Part 2

Part 2: Little i's coat! I had this done about a week and half ago but it has been hot and humid here. Or warm and humid. or well, humid and humid. Little i has refused to wear the coat but I finally got a few pictures today. :)

A combination of apples and pears for the hood and sleeve lining and owls in trees for the body and pockets. The pattern is Burda 9676, which is yes, a girl's pattern, but I made it work for a boy. :) I modified the pattern a bit and am pretty pleased with the results!

come on already! I want to play!!

Maybe i'll smile, maybe i won't :P
snap studs are orange and sockets green (or i could have that backwards LOL)

Super fun pointy hood.

Just cause they are so cute together!

and i have been playing with dye and wool. this is your sock yarn mom! hope you like it :) it's purplely, blue and a deep chocolate.

Part 3 is my coat, but I need to order the lining material aaaannndd.... I have been asked to be a pattern reviewer for sewmamasew blog! I am very excited! I will be sure to post pics of the project I do :)

Thanks for all of the nice comments!
I do scrapbook. Well right now I take pictures to scrapbook as the boys currently crumple up all of my papers when they are out.
