wool blanket coat

I have been given a wool blanket (thanks Sara) and have decided to turn it into a coat. Found a simple pattern at my local fabric shop. Have cut the coat out and I will bundle it up with lots of  lovely leaves…. then sew it up mostly by hand as I love the look of hand  stitching. In my mission for wool I spotted (in a great magazine ” Peppermint” ) a website for a fabric shop in Brisbane and they have sent some samples of their wool jersey …. I will test them when the coat gets bundled.
