Everyone needs a Good Coat

I’ve had this winter❄️ coat 🧥 for years but I must confess I don’t wear it as often anymore.

It’s often made its way to the donation pile but I’ve always had a change of mind just before I head out the door. I think it’s the cocoon shape I like so much. And it’s a good coat. And everyone needs a good coat so I’ve hung onto it.

Over the years the lining has worn away to tatters and I’ve finally decided to fix it!

I found this fun cloud print bedsheet at a thrift store and thought it would make a great new lining.

I unpicked the old lining, I traced out the pattern. Then sewed it all together
