Wrap Up in Style With This DIY Wool Blanket Coat

Look!
Is it a cape? Is it a shawl? Is it a poncho?
NO!
It’s a BLANKET COAT…
and apparently, all the major designers have them in their 2014 fall collections. You can be right on trend and easily refashion one from a blanket you might already have around the house.
My sweet husband says I’ll be the best dressed mom at the state football playoffs next weekend. I love him!!!


I found this wool blanket at my thrift store awhile back and have been waiting for just the right moment to use it.


It’s so soft and I love the fact that, like me, it made it’s way out west from Minnesota.

Happy Refashioning!

Love it! Will have to try if I can find a blanket like that.

I've said before, but I'll say it again - this coat looks absolutely perfect for autumn. I'll definitely be looking for some material to make my own version.
