So - as usual winter means I lose most inspiration to make things. But yesterday I got off my butt (or not really considering I stayed on my couch sewing this) and made a case for my new Smartphone!
I used a scrap from an old curtain, some green lining fabric and a vintage button. Braided heavy cotton thread closes the case.
It's not much, bit it's cute and I made it, yay!

I've had the bodices for these t-shirts cut and then folded and put away since... 2006, maybe. Each time I was thinking of what to sew next I would take them out, think "meh, boring" and put them back in the drawer... But not yesterday!
Here's the result of barely two hours of sewing. Very basic and comfy! I made them quite long, both because I have a long torso (my rtw tops usually have to be pulled back down every two seconds, I do have better things to do, lol) and also so I can wear these both with jeans and with leggings.

A couple of hours later and very frustrated I decided to do something very easy but rewarding, I changed buttons in a favorite cardigan! It only had three of five buttons left, and they were the cheap and boring kind... Solution? Vintage pearl buttons!

Perfect fit, wool, warm, heavy, classic forest green and it's a coat and cape all in one and I love it. From the cut, mainly the sleeves, I think it's from the 1970's but the style is pretty much timeless. What it cost me? Only 300SEK (thats about 45USD)!

Anyway, what I was getting to: Some coat inspiration! Less talk and more picures! Here goes:
