Kwik Sew Cat Coat

This coat is based on the "Jacket with zipper, hood and ribbing waistband" from the Kwik Sew's Sewing for Children book.

Satin stitching the cat on the back.

Coat uses 4 different fabrics, all found at the thrift store in the last few years. I might add more of the leopard fun fur to the cuffs and hood, but I need Leah to try it on first, and I won't be giving her the coat until Monday (her birthday!).

I made sure the cat on the back wouldn't be covered by the hood. I did that on a sweater of my own -- the hood covers the horse I stitched on the back (duh!).


  1. Cute jacket! Did you use a tear-away stabilizer for the cat pattern?
