Easy Peasy Felt Coat & Beret Hat

Updated: Sep 24, 2023



I love to work with felt its inexpensive material and very easy to sew with and no need to worry about raw-edged. Normally I don't use felt for doll clothes but because I want to get rid of the big piece of felt dark green one that I own for a while somehow the color makes me sad, so I think hard and come up with the idea of ..."I wonder how fast I could sew something cute for the doll with this miserable green?" Snip snap with my magic wand and sewing machine...an hour later I made these cute little coats and beret! I'm surprised how well it turned out!

Well, in the end, the green felt doesn't make me sad anymore instead it's giving me a great idea to make very cute and easy coats, Thanks green felt and I'm sorry I said you were miserable.

So adorable! Have you ever made felt boots to match? Maybe with faux leather soles, that would be so cute! This is going on my project list. I just got a sewing machine that I need to learn. I’m currently working on your coffee mugs (by hand stitching), and my little girl loves it so much that she‘s stealing them right from my work station, before it’s even finished! Lol.
