But I am thinking with the guidance of my mom, I might be able to make a blanket coat. Basically you take a blanket and add sleeves. (No, not a Snuggie, how dare you.) I have even seen some where the sleeves are made of another material like suede or something which I think I would like, it would help break up the pattern.
I've found these beautiful "Mexican blankets" that are $16 at a Native American shop in Kansas but I'm afraid it'll just look like a poncho or like the baja hoodies stoner-kids wear in highschool.
|Not quite the right look I am going for.|
Some might be able to pull these looks off, I am not that someone. I would look like I was trying too much. Or like I was wearing a costume.
I will be visiting home for the holidays by the end of this weekend, so perhaps during my stay I can work on making one of these jackets with my momma.
Here is a sneak peak to a picture post coming soon...
