I have finally finished my sewing project, the Raggy Jacket. Wasn't too excited about the Homespun fabric choices I had, so it is hurting somewhat. I do not like the red especially, but was short a new fabric and decided on this. I also did it on the cheap. Went to a fabric mill end warehouse and spent only $29.
I needed to borrow an iron and did not have an ironing board in Montana. I also did not bring my rotary cutter or my plastic measuring rulers, but it worked. I also needed to phone my son-in-law, Mike, to get a quick geometry lesson when I was cutting the bias strips. Wanted to be 100% sure I was laying the fabric in the correct direction before cutting. He told me I was right. Thanks, Mike, for the help. He has cut and laid tile for many years, and I knew he would have the answer.
This will be perfect for winters in Florida, walking the dog. There in the last picture you can see the caboose, so you will know why I need to get walking this winter! By the way, The Trout said I looked like Emmett Kelly in it!!! I know there are some of you out there who know who I am talking about it. Love you, Trout!!
