|I've had waterproof fabric for a while, thinking I wanted to make a raincoat for my granddaughter. But I was scared to cut into it. So first I made a little doggie rain coverup for Ginger. Here it is in progress, but I did finish it. She finally got to wear it this weekend when we had some rain. |
So now I've been working on Samantha's raincoat. The fabric is tricky. You have to stick masking tape on the underside of the presser foot to keep it from sticking to the fabric. Plus you have to keep having to replace the tape because it wears out. Also, you can't use pins, but you can use paper clips or some other kind of clips.
It's starting to look more like a raincoat here. I just need to add buttonholes and buttons and finish the pleat in the back.
In the future I will cheerfully buy ready-made raincoats.
