Here is the fireman coat I made for my grandson's 3rd birthday--it is made of felt backed vinyl--what I'd call oilcloth. He loved it! I made 2 other outfits--photos below. The scrubs are from a "veggie tales" print and the karate outfit from some unknown fabric that was on a clearance table at the local Hancock's. Patterns used were Butterick 3244 for the fireman coat and McCall's 4103 for the scrubs and karate outfit.
Now I may do some more sewing for--ME!
These were great fun to make, however!
