tragedy to triumph
(Click on the images above to view the full coat)

I had this very awesome owl sweater. It was the greatest sweater I have ever owned and I got a compliment on it every time I wore it. When I was at my parents' house, I washed it and it totally funked out (even though I'd washed it dozens of times at a laundrymat). I was very sad but I decided to cut out the cool tag and the buttons and play taps when I threw it away.

When I went with my mom to our local Walmart, I had to pick up the same pattern and buy some cheapo fabric at Walmart. At first I didn't love this green fabric but it turned out great. The lining doesn't match perfectly, but I wanted to go cheap because I already made a coat last year and this was just a fluke project considering I had ten million other things to craft while I was at home.

I made the coat but was missing something .... it was missing a sweet owl patch. After testing the placement all over the coat, we decided it looked best on the sleeve. So the poor owl sweater still lives with in this coat.

That is so pretty. I love that you saved the coat. Out of the ashes rises the phoenix, er owl.
