I'm so excited to be part of Twig & Tale's Rebranding Blog Tour today! I'm determined to #sewallthecoats this year and the Wild Things Coat is so stinking cute! How could you say no to those little ears???
I'm seriously in love with this coat. It comes with so many options: fox, unicorn, bear, dino, bunny, cat, mouse, panda, giraffe, zebra, horse, donkey, ladybird (ladybug for us in the US), and a dog.
There's also the Dragon add-on that's free to Newsletter subscribers which is really awesome.
Jude wanted a "bunny" coat, and I was very happy to oblige!
Now, I did slightly err from the instructions. I know, me erring from instructions?! The only change I made was to add the 4 buttons down the placket, rather than putting them on the side and at the top.
There was one other slight change I did, but I'll leave you to wonder about it for a minute. ;)
Art Gallery graciously sponsored this tour and I chose Clouded Horizon denim, a cross-hatch textured denim for the outer and then Bonnie Christine's Hello Bear, "Oh, Hello Meadow" for the lining. It was serendipitous that I also had a yard of Adventure Springs knit in my stash that I made Jude a shirt to go with in. I feel awful for saying this, but I didn't even realize it was part of the same line until I went to look up the fabrics! His jeans are also Art Gallery Denim. Is it obvious I have an Art Gallery addiction??
So now onto my other slight change! I added a layer of batting and quilted the lining. We're making this coat super warm and cozy. Beyond those two slight changes, I followed the directions to a T and I just love this little coat. I couldn't resist adding a label into it. I'll be honest that I haven't added labels to much. I really should add them to everything I make though.
I love the fit of the coat. It's absolutely perfect for Jude and I'm quite certain he'll be a cozy bunny all winter long.
Make sure to check out the other stops on this tour. They're all so whimsical and magical!
I really do just love this little coat!
