Easy Peasy Felt Coat & Beret Hat

Updated: Sep 24

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 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.
