It never fails. As soon as one list is checked off, another one starts. I took Anna's pink, waterproof, spring coat out of the wash and realized it had seen it's day. It was given to us about three years ago. A hand me down. I do love hand me downs.
I was about to make a mental note that she needed a new raincoat, when I remembered I had just the fabric to make one.
About a year ago I got some waterproof fabric from Joanne's, and I found the perfect matching fabric in my stash. I used this pattern from Jackie Clark, and well, there you go.
The best part though, was when she came back inside, and I got her all changed and warm, and out of the blue she said "Mama, I lub (love) my new coat." Ah, be still my beating heart. Now you know why I make so many things for this child.
