Kept Quilted Coat and Tote

The Kept Quilted Coat and Tote not only rhyme, but they are also super fun! Brittney Frey (who makes some really incredible quilted coats) made these using my Kept collection and the coordinates.

For the coat, Brittney used the Nova Coat from Papercut Patterns and the Fat Quarter bundles of both Kept and the coordinates. It’s such a great shape, and I LOVE that it has pockets.

Brittney created a patchwork of color and print from the various fabrics. I love how they are grouped together and transition across the coat!

For the tote, she used the Sylvie Tote (Everyday Size) by Sotak Handmade and the leftover fabrics from the coat. This bag is an excellent size for everyday carrying, for sure.

Brittney patchworked the fabrics in the same way and at the same scale for the tote as she did for the tote. It makes a great pair, don’t you think?

The Details and Construction

Not to put too fine a point on this, but this coat and tote are BEAUTIFULLY made. Brittney did such an incredible job. The lining on the coat is finished out with an invisible zipper enclosing all of the layers, the patchwork matches up perfectly in the pocket construction, there’s a label(!), and the tote is finely detailed too with a zippered section, rivets and leather handles. As soon as I received the shipment from Brittney I so enjoyed taking in all of these thoughtful and skilled decisions.
