A Christmas Coat

Being pregnant means no cute (or very functional) winter coats this year. So I decided to make myself a winter coat, only miniature.
 I followed the pattern sold by Alicia Paulson. It was really easy and fun. I'm currently flipping through her book Stitched in Time and making a list of cool little projects to do.
The ornament actually ended up taking me a really long time because it had been so long since I used embroidery  thread and even longer since I did a blanket stitch. But it is so cute. I'm glad I made it.
Since it ended up being so cute, I'm sort of tempted to try making the gingerbread house pattern but then I realize that I just do not have the skills for that one. Oh well, a girl can dream.
