Grocery Bag Raincoat
Despite having lived in the Pacific Northwest, Sora doesn't have a rain jacket. Although she probably won't need it much now that we're in the Midwest, I decided to rectify that while at the same time using the plastic bags by making her a grocery bag rain jacket.
I used rubber ducky flannel to line the jacket, so I added a rubber ducky applique (also out of plastic bags).
And, while hard to see, there is a pocket for Sora to put all her favorite outdoor finds in, which currently include rocks, sticks, and leaves.
No rain jacket would be complete without a bill to keep the rain from running in Sora's eyes!
I finished the jacket off by adding velcro so that Sora can take it off at any time all by herself. This seems to be a popular feature, because I can't keep it on long enough for a photo shoot. She likes taking it off and trying to put it back on herself.
Look for a tutorial on the jacket coming soon!
