    Finally added a little belt too. It needed something to finish them off I think

    The coat is from Taddah Patterns. It is their duffle coat pattern 0-12 sizing from
    memory. Costs about $12 for a PDF download. I would recommend paying the extra few dollars to get it printed at office works on large format paper though. Otherwise you have to stick together 20+ pages of the pattern

    To those of you who make things like cushions and curtains (or anything really with thick or large pieces of fabric, what kind of sewing machine do you have?

    Just a regular $99 special from spotlight.
    I think it's an Elna. Sounds like a freight train but it works. Just a by more awkward with larger pieces of fabric but i find using the machine at the end of the dining table and laying the fabric accross to support the weight helps

    I think for sewing heavier fabrics, you just need to use a stronger needle & thread rather than machine. I've done that to sew thick denim before.
