The Crafty Disaster: Coat Refashion + Introduction

Hello! I am Lindsay from the Crafty Disaster. I just started my DIY blog a little over a month ago for a class I am taking at school. I am a crafter at heart and like to make anything I can. Sewing is definitely my favorite form of crafting and what better way to recycle than to refashion! I hope to share many more of my refashioning projects in the future. 

I just shared a tutorial this past week on refashioning a coat into the perfect mad-hatter's costume. It consisted of a dye job, some iron-on patches, and some light sewing. 


Before and after.

There are more pictures and a step by step tutorial at the Crafty Disaster.

Welcome aboard, Lindsay! You made a great costume piece, but it's still totally wearable for everyday too. I like the new color much better, and I love the thread spool bandolier. So cool!

Hello! Thank you Carissa for checking it out. The spools were everyone's favorite at the Alice in Wonderland party we went to!
