Let’s just get it out of the way – my photos aren’t terrible, but they’re not great either! Clearly I had the wrong settings and didn’t pay attention enough to notice. UGH! At any rate, this tutorial is too cute and handy not to share, so I’m sucking it up and letting you all in!
This is a winter coat that was supposed to fit my second son for this winter, however, he’s bigger than my first was at this time, so it wouldn’t work! Yes, I could donate it, but how in the world would I be able to help Liberate Your Creativity if I did that! With this coat I created two separate projects. The first one was with only the hood. The removable hood has two snaps at the base and buttons along the button to secure itself to the coat.
Time: 1 hour or less, easy!
Topic: Children, Sewing
This is the hood (obviously!).
All I did was snap the hood together and sew along the bottom edge of the hood. (Leave about a 3 inch gap just before the snaps or the end of the hood).
Attach to the handle of your stroller and you now have an incredibly handy extra storage area for the things you need to grab quickly (for me that’s chapstick, sunglasses and cell phone).
Even though this is a 12-18 month size coat/hood it’s certainly deep enough to hold things and they won’t fall out.
You could even add a quick zipper or velcro strip if prefered.
