A Jacket Built For Two

Hello Refashion Co-op. It's Chickie with a jacket that I made recently. It is heavy and soft, perfect to share with this little guy on cold days.

Why is the jacket so huge? To fit around the baby, the carrier and me. It does cover both of us but the arms are gigantic and the waistband is gaping open at the bottom.

I made the arms more my size and length as well as tightening up the waistband. I think he likes it.

Thanks for reading, for more details go to, I Can Work With That. Now go make something fabulous for yourself. Or a little buddy.

What a cool idea. You don't have to worry about blanket sliding off your baby.

Yes, me too. It was ridiculous looking at first, but I wound up needing all that to fit around both of us. 😄
