I can't believe it i have actually been sewing lately.......

First up was making a coat for my brother Nikki, in total it took around 10hrs and i did it al in one day, but left the hemming and buttons till my brother had tried it on, so i have something i have to finish tonight then its all complete.

Yesterday we went and bought the wool to make the good version of the coat, $240 later OMG i am going to be so nervous cutting into that material, now we need to go to Spotlight and get the buttons as Lincraft didn't have them, actually yesterday i was reminded why i don't shop at Lincraft very often.

The last thing i made was a Hoodie set for Hartley monkey which he wore yesterday when we went out but threw up all over himself before i had a chance to take a nice photo of him in it, always the way isnt it!

Ok bestgo Hartley has been awake since 5am and just woke from a 15min nap, so i think today is going to be loooooooong but fingers crossed no more chucking.

Hi Kys,
You left a comment on my blog http://sewchristine.blogspot.com/ about softies. I don't know what these are. Can you enlighten me please?

I'll reply here and on your blog too, but softies are toys made from material, like ones pictured in this thread:
