A felted jacket…….

Here’s the thing………I don’t think I actually used felted fabric. I used wool that wasn’t felted. But when I cut it out, it didn’t fray at all so I decided to leave the edges raw. I simply finished them with a twin needle top stitch.

And it seems fine. Time will tell of course but I actually think a bit of fraying would be a good look anyway.

So this would have to be one of the quickest easiest jackets I have ever made. Top stitching included, it took no more than a couple of hours. This is the finished product…….

This is not a great shot of the colour which is more of an oyster or putty. I got it from Pitt Trading at Sans Souci, the first stop of a most memorable fabric crawl with 2 friends……will fill you in on the details down the track!!
