tragedy to triumph
(Click on the images above to view the full coat)
I had this very awesome owl sweater. It was the greatest sweater I have ever owned and I got a compliment on it every time I wore it. When I was at my parents' house, I washed it and it totally funked out (even though I'd washed it dozens of times at a laundrymat). I was very sad but I decided to cut out the cool tag and the buttons and play taps when I threw it away.
When I went with my mom to our local Walmart, I had to pick up the same pattern and buy some cheapo fabric at Walmart. At first I didn't love this green fabric but it turned out great. The lining doesn't match perfectly, but I wanted to go cheap because I already made a coat last year and this was just a fluke project considering I had ten million other things to craft while I was at home.
I made the coat but was missing something .... it was missing a sweet owl patch. After testing the placement all over the coat, we decided it looked best on the sleeve. So the poor owl sweater still lives with in this coat.
