(apparently this is what i do when my husband is gone...)
i finally finished my raincoat. it took a very long time but i did learn a few things.
1. sewing machines do not like plastic. a trick i learned after sewing over half the coat by hand is to stick tape on to the bottom of the foot (on the sewing machine). works like a charm. 
2. i am in dire need of a thimble. 
3. cooper does not like clear plastic, it makes funny noises.

i would love to post a tutorial on this but it was a pain to make, so here's my steps...
buy a simple pattern. buy clear plastic according to the pattern. buy trim, lots of trim. cut out the pattern. sew together. sew on the trim. done.
