Fruit Crate Label Throw Jacket

Jacket back.  When selecting this throw, I paid special attention to the placement of the design that would be on the back.  I didnt want to crop out much of the design.

My sister saw this jacket in a magazine and wanted one made with an aztec throw that she had found.  I was nervous making it for her, as the throw she chose was a triple woven throw.  So, I decided to make one for myself first, to see if I could do it.  She liked it and I eventually made her the jacket that she wanted also.  I traced the pattern pieces first, then straight stitched inside the lines to prevent excess fraying while sewing it.  Then I double serged all the seams, to keep them from fraying.  This made it well constructed and able to be washed in the washing machine.  It makes a nice, cozy jacket to wear out on a fall evening.
