the Wanderings Coat in red






Wanderings Coat patterns still available in our shop. A new variation in red brings the perfect Christmas cheer. Especially when accompanied by the fierce and toujours hungry wolf. Luckily Mr. Woodsman (our papa) can come save poor little Red from the troublesome zippered Wolfie. With a little ax work and a pull of the zipper, our caped girl is free. Hurrah! Kits available within the next few days to make your own zippered Wolfie and personalized Riding Hood heros and heroines.

Oh my goodness. Wolfie with a zippered tummy is brilliant! Maybe my kids would be more excited to wear their coats if they were this fun!

I love the little details you put on your creations. I mean the coat is lovely, but the inside is fantastic!

Brooke said...

The coat is adorable! Any chance this would be make-able in a boiled wool? I'd love to make it for my daughter but our winters (and falls, for that matter) require more than linen or cotton to keep warm!

Melissa - this is AMAZING!!!!! I can't tell you how in love I am with this adorable coat. And the zippered wolf?! Unbelievable. I also LOVE that picture of the woodsman... hilarious.

The wolf pocket is SUCH a clever idea!!!! And the red and pinstripe is absolutely YUMMY! Good for holidays!

Kathryn said...

What a hunk of a woodsman - And the coat is brilliant!

Oh by the way, what do you use to make the cloth people? Do you use that cloth that you can put into your printer? I've used that before but it says that it will come out in the washer so I've refrained from using it too much.

this is remarkable! such a clever design. I love the cute (and macabre) zippered wolf part.

Nessa said...

I can't express how much I LOVE THAT COAT! I wish I had a little one to dress up in it :-)
The idea for the zippered tummy on the wolf is so cunning, and I love how you can personalize the characters.
Well done!

I received this coat pattern today, thank you so much! Yo8 two are so talented, and then on top of that, generous to actually share it with the rest of us. Your blog is a constant source of inspiration to me, and I look forward to your creations. I have to admit, I'm kind of hoping that the Muff Lust ensemble gets a pattern. I'll be in line for that one as well!

OMG.... this is the cutest thing I have ever seen.... makes me wish for a girl. I love the secrets in the lining.

Kris said...

Wow! Very little red riding hood! Love the stripy lining. Very lovely.

This coat is adorable!
Your last post about making the CDs sounded so familiar. I have a seven year old boy who totally loves Star Wars. He wouldn't like making gifts for his friends either. My older daughter made CDs with a mix of Christmas songs for her friends a few years ago. They loved it! Her CD is one of her friend's families favorite Christmas CDs.

I don't sew but I would LOVE to have a coat like this for my almost-five-year-old... just gorgeous!!!

Bethany Hissong said...

NO way! I can't even believe you came up with this!!! Well, I can... it's just brilliant. Is there some kind of patent for this? Any little girl would adore this coat. I want one myself. I LOVE the red!!!

ConstanceV said...

I agree with Meg it's the little details that make all the difference! Superbe!
