...that's right sis, come June we're East Coast bound! We're packing up and taking a few extra days on the cross country journey to see a few sites that we might not otherwise get to see.

...for this little beauty...

...came from these little boots!

Little Byrd had an "From Inspiration to Completion" blog post last week where she created the most darling bag from an image she had in her swipe file. Well, Rebekah's post got me to thinking and roaming through my own swipe files when I came across the little pink boots above. They orginally inspired a little raincoat project, but after researching laminated cotton and finding out just how expensive the material is the project was quickly filed to the back of my mind.

Recently went looking for new jackets for the girls and found nothing to my liking.
So out of neccessity, the Little Marisol Jacket was born.

So many ideas are brewing for the Marisol Coat.
Hoping to get it graded up to at least to a girl's size 8 and doing some research into making it a pattern for sale. For now the coat is offered in a toddler's size 2 in our shop.
