This is a jacket I made for Isaac. I made it using a pair of corduroy pants. Yep, pants. After Christmas, I started going through all of my craft things and wanted to get rid of some things because things would fall on my when I opened the craft closet. Yep, it was THAT bad. Ha ha. I pulled out this pair of pants:
They are size 7 boys corduroy pants (from Old Navy). They still had the tag on them. I actually got them from my mom's "going-to-the-thrift-store" pile. They were some that my brother didn't like. I snatched them up, planning on saving them until they could fit Isaac. But, not wanting to have a bunch of items waiting around in my craft closet, I decided to make a little jacket out of them. I bought some flannel fabric at Joann's and some thread (and used a coupon for both). All I spent on this jacket was $7.
I used this jacket to make a pattern.
I used some scrapbook paper to create a pattern for the jacket. After cutting the pieces out, I had arms, front and back. I cut out the collar later using a button-up shirt for the pattern.
Come back Wednesday and I will show you how I made the pockets, and what I used to make them! Then, on Thursday, I will show you some more pictures of the finished jacket as well as the leftover pants - there is not much left over!
