With twenty hours to spare, I finished the scrap coat for Sew Up Seattle's Great Scrap Coat Challenge! Charlie, Marcus, and I are ready to strut our stuff tomorrow in the Greenwood Seafair Parade!
I still needed to use the buttons, so I stitched them onto the front of the strap. Not only did this add a little bit of flare, but it also cleverly disguised the messy zipper installation and hem job I did at the top of the coat (ooops!). I also opted for some simple patch pockets, rather than the large front pocket I previously had on the coat - these pockets are perfect for a certain superhero's Matchbox cars (that travel with him everywhere he goes!).
Now I just have to hope that Charlie will wear his coat in the parade tomorrow! After the parade, I'll post some pictures of the three of us and the superhero coat in action.
