    Denim- old skirt. Fleece - remnant. Warm and Natural left over from last quilt. And it is getting cold here in Florida!! My grand daughter broke her elbow and the cast wont fit into a sleeve. So...made one sleeve bigger. Also matching hat and mittens. Now she wants me to make her high heel shoes.

    She does love it. I made her one last year that she wouldn't wear and told me to give it to another girl. So her cousin got that one.

    That's a great coat, looks very warm. I could have used you when I broke my arm and couldn't find any jackets/coats to fit over the cast?

    Try buying a pair of girls dressy shoes with a little heel, and making knee high 'spats' to match the coat. ;)

    truly awesomely cute. be careful with those high heel shoes. she could end up with a broken leg to go with the broken arm. just teasing. she's a winner.

    Wonderful winter wear, the high heel part is an adorable story you can tell on her for the rest of her life.

    Well, my daughter is having surgery on her wrist next month and will be in a cast. She is already asking. So--looks like I started something.
