    I wanted to make one of these for ages. I wanted a quick and easy way and this is what I came up with. Very simple. the binding took the longest believe it or not´´

    This will keep me warm during our winter as the houses which are made from concrete are very cold at this time of year.

    Hi, Yes it is fussy cut and then appliqued on by machine using a fancy stitch.

    I used the basis of a Tutorial on this board. Go to Tutorials and search Jackets. I followed the excellent one by Terri.

    You can line them or not. I didn´t with this one but probably the next one I make I will.

    Gabby, there are already Tutorials on how to do this on the Tute Section. thats what I used and just modified it.

    Just get a sweatshirt 1 size bigger than you would normally wear and cut the back and front, then the sleeves off. cut the ribbing off the sleeves and the bottom of the shirt. I then ironed the pieces and cut my fabric out using the shirt as the pattern. I then fussy cut pieces of fabric out and appliqued them on using a nice stitch. Sew it all back together and thats it.

    Hope that helps
