Farbenmix pattern Querida
Here is one of my girls' new coats! I have been working on this little project for a couple of weeks--a lot of time, effort, and love went into this. She is a huge fan of My Little Pony, and a while back asked if I could make her a coat with Twilight Sparkle on it. I forgot how much I enjoyed doing applique.
I used anti pill fleece, lined with flannel, and also some Insul-Bright which is an insulated lining that I sandwiched between the fleece and flannel. I did not put the Insul-Bright in the sleeves, only the body part of the coat. This coat is so warm!
Who doesn't love a HUGE pom pom on their hood! :) I lined the hood with fleece as well.
Twilight Sparkle in her beautiful gown with matching shoes. I made her out of pieces of felt, putting her together like a puzzle! Then I had my daughter sit beside me at the sewing machine, guiding me as I did the inside stitch details. The eyes were definitely the tricky part of this applique since they are made up of a few different layers. I am very pleased how this turned out.
Pockets are sewn into the side seams of the coat. My sewing machine has monogram capability.
Got to have the cutie mark!
I really like this coat pattern. Pattern instructions are in German, but you can go to their site and see a brief summary on how to assemble the coat. First I use Google Translate and translate the pattern pieces to English, writing it on the pattern for reference.
My next project is a puppy-themed Querida. After that, I am in desperate need of some jeans for myself. Time to pull out the Jalie jean pattern!
