Lookee what became of those hand warmer scraps:
meet my quirktastically cool new jacket!
Here’s what I did:
I snagged this almost-forgotten-well-worn corduroy jacket from the storage room
slipped the remaining front of the hand warmer coat over top of it & checked the fit
removed the zipper & chopped the front panels to size
and carefully stitched them on
as the fabric beside the zipper was too thick for my poor retro machine to get through, I machine sewed as close to the edge as possible & then securely blanket stitched the thick sides together using a funky green embroidery thread
I freaking love my ‘new’ jacket!
