Chenille For Real

“What could I do with these?” is what I asked myself about the re-purposed wool sleeves I used for this coat. They had come off of another wool sweater coat of some kind because it was decided they would be better suited on some other garment. And well, they are. I found the fabric I used while rummaging around textile piles, seeing what I had and what I could use for what. It is a multi-colored woven chenille with a really cool diamond pattern that you don’t really notice up-close.

I admit, setting these thick wool sleeves was a bit of a challenge, but we made it through. And I’m glad we did. This coat is what their ultimate destiny was, after all. ;)

I will say, we took these pictures on a pretty chilly Fall day. This coat helped with the chill by far, but I only had on a long sleeve t-shirt underneath… so if you tend to err on the side of freezing all the time (such as myself), then I suggest throwing on a little something more, or heavier, under this multi-colored beauty.
