Kmart shopper share incredible sewing hack - using $4 blankets to craft warm jackets

This woman took 'being nifty' to a whole new level!

Isolation has made us stop, reflect and focus on hobbies we'd love to take up. Some of us have been making use of our slow-cookers, air-fryers and even returning to studies - but one woman's quest to sew is by far one of the most impressive.

Taking to Facebook, an Australian woman has showed off “warm and comfortable” jacket she made - using a $4 Kmart blanket.

On Thursday May 21, the Kmart customer bought a fleece throw and converted it into a cozy jacket.

The woman used the blanket fabric, sewing sleeves on and strategically folding the edge to make a collar - and the result is amazing!

Fellow shoppers were also impressed by the make-shift coat, with one writing: "That would be so comfortable!"

"Can she make me one?" another added.

We'd love a cozy coat, too!
