Ugly Coat Refashion – Suggestions Wanted
I need your help!
I snagged this wool coat for 49-cents a few months ago, even though I wasn’t sure what exactly I had in mind for it.
I thought the buttons alone would be worth the 49-cents…I mean, come on, new buttons are stinkin’ expensive, ya’ know?
The problem is, I still don’t really have a vision for it. I guess I could always just cut it up and make several projects out of it.
Like these…(which were also made out of cut up wool sweaters or blazers or coats)…
I’ve also made several scarves, headwarmers, and coasters out of felted wool. (unfortunately I didn’t get any pics of the scarves or headwarmers).
Anyway, back to the coat…
Take a look at the only tag it contained.
Made in the U.S.A. wouldn’t you know!
I know that I could probably make this coat into any one (or all) of the things pictured above, but I was wondering if it might be cute refashioned into a garment of some sort.
I thought that before I started chopping away at it, I’d ask you all for your valued opinions.
What do you think I should turn this coat into? Help me out of this rut!
