Another crazy Freeform Crochet Coat!!

It's been ages since I last wrote a blog post! One of many good reasons is that my now 2 year old little Gwenda has killed my laptop!! :-) I just found an app for my mobile phone & so it might be possible I can actually get this post done while breastfeeding my 8 week old!! No excuses anymore!! I guess I finished this coat in October, obviously I was still highly pregnant!!

The special thing about this coat is that it contains uncountable projects I started & never finished over the last 10 years or so! :-) I really got fed up with all these WIPs (WIP means 'Works in progress' for those of you who don't understand crochet language) & so I decided to turn them into something wearable. You can never have enough coats & so that's what I added to my neon wardrobe!!

For those of you who are wondering how I get the yarny puzzle pieces in the right shape: I took an old jacket and used hundreds of safety pins to attach all the crochet pieces onto it. Then I simply crocheted the pieces together!!

As you can see there are still some yarn ends to hide but nothing is as boring as perfection so I guess it will just stay this way!! Hard to recognize the ends anyway in all this neon chaos!!

I might just make a little coat for this little miss as well, I've given up on crocheting things for little baby Gwenda as I could just watch her growing out of her crochet clothes. Now that she is a proper toddler she fits in her clothes a bit longer, finally!!

Another photo of the coat, just to show you it's dimensions and all these projects I never managed to finish!! So satisfying I actually 'completed' them!! :-)

And a last picture with my 8 week old little Zelda!! I'm so thankful that she is such a talented sleeper (Mami gets all in all 10 hours of sleep a night!!) & she enjoys sitting on me whilst I can crochet! Nothing better!!

Much love to all my princesses & princes,

DaDa, GwenDa & ZelDa
