It was Outerwear Week over at
I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to make at first… And then I decided I wanted to try to make a Raincoat… But not just in name only… I wanted to take Regular Cotton Fabric and Make it Water Proof.. What better way to do that then put VINYL on it… I searched HIGH and LOW for this Fabric…
It’s Called Rainy Days and Mondays by Melimba & Beccabury
Well it was a fabric line back in 2009 and not so Easy to come by
So when I found it on Etsy I was THRILLED!!
I was even able to find a Yard of the Coordinating Grey Fabric
what a Blessing that was..
So what happens when you live in a place that NEVER rains and you are doing a RAINY DAY themed photo shoot..
You Make your Own!!!
Only this FUN!!!!
Rainy Days would be GLORIOUS!!!
So for today!!!
So here’s a quick look at what I did to VINYLIZE this coat… If that’s even a word..
I bought Iron on Vinyl by the Yard
Cutting out my Jacket Pieces first then Placing it on my Vinyl and Cutting it to the Exact size of Pattern pieces
The pieces for the Coat were big so I here was what was Going to be a pocket ( decided against it in the end.. )
Peel the Vinyl off of the Paper backing and put STICKY side down on fabric and smooth out
Using the Same paper lining put it on top of the VINYL and Iron per instructions
Remove your Paper and you have just VINYLIZED your fabric
