Mama's and grandmothers of boys...I've got a new boy pattern for you today! I know how tricky it can be so sew for boys (especially for older ones) and I hope my newest pattern will put a smile on your face!
Introducing HERO VEST:
If you've never sewn with knits before, don't despair. You can choose to sew the exterior of the vest using woven cotton fabric or a knit fabric. The vest in these photos was sewn using a quilting cotton. It is lined with polar fleece and the binding is made using stretch ribbing which is super easy to use as you just stretch it to fit as you sew. You don't need anything more than your basic sewing machine to have success with this pattern. I'll share photos of some of the other vests I've made in the next week or so to give you and idea what they look like sewn up in different fabric combos. And even though the pattern is targeted at boys, it also makes an awesome vest for girls too! (Those lucky girls can pretty much wear anything!)
Hero Vest is avaliable in two size ranges: Little Hero Vest for sizes 0-5 and Big Hero Vest for sizes 6-10. It can also be purchased as an Instant Download PDF Pattern from my website or paper versions of the pattern will start hitting stores soon. Check out my list of stockists here.
