Stash buster and Zero Waste

I bought some felled wool, from The Selvedge Society on Instagram in winter last year . I didn’t get around to using it then but thought it may work as a jacket or cape . The immediate issue was I only had 150cm x 110cm of fabric to use. It is a gorgeous double sided Green and Grey combination. I used it all a zero waste pattern.

The pattern

The CF is cut up to a point 50cm from the back hem. At the front up 28cm from side edge a cut 38cm long is made those edges are then folded in and overlapped slightly and stitched together.At this point I realised this back piece would slip when wearing so I stitched it to the back at the top and bottom of the seam .

The design idea
The felted wool remnant
I wore it and it works well

I made to wear in the wheelchair or on the scooter as it covers me well and is warm and comfortable. It works well and has a cape look when sitting .

Happy Sewing,

Sue 😊
