How did faux fur trim make out with the dye?

Kitty

Oh my! Thats almost the same as the beige coat I gave to charity a few weeks ago because it was so dull and boring...
*kicks self hard*
If only I'd known about you then... :-)

Jo

Is there a pattern for the flowers shawl/scarf in tge last couple of photos? The whole thing looks great :-) I do love red!

Clare Morris

I want to know which pattern you used for the beautiful scarf/shawl that matches the wonderful hooky squares of your coat! They are absolutely beautiful together.

Neha

Hi Lucy,

Great job! The coat looks stunning and the squares make it even more beautiful!!

I love the scarf that you have hung along with the coat too. Do you have the patter for that too?

Thanks,
Neha

You have inspired me. A navy coat was bequithed to me. I must replace the zipper, but the coat is warm with a plaid flanel lining... just a but dull. I think some hooky embelishments are in short order. Thank you!

I too had a drab beige coat until 2 days ago! What a fantastic idea! I dyed mine 'intense violet'...oh it's intense; I LOVE IT! I have dyed numerous things in the past but for some reason I persevered with this boring old jacket...my only regret is that I didn't take a before picture! ARGH! x
