A vest really but it was made for someone in England so we'll call it a waistcoat!
Third finish of third quarter Finish Along 2014....Yeah!!
Mom....can you make a vest for a friend?
Can you quilt it?
Can you put a gear on it?
Can you put a pocket inside?
Can you put a Christmas tree with a star on it like I made for the tree at The Story Museum?
Why yes daughter...yes I can.
Found a gear drawing online.
Did a bit of paper piecing.
A little basting.
Appliqued a few circles and a gear is made.
Free pieced a tree and embroidered the star. Found a pattern and some fabric she approved.
Quilted and buttonholed.
A quilted vest for her friend....creator of The Story Loom...a very Steampunk kinda friend!:)
The girl found the perfect pewter buttons.
It was well received thank heavens!!
ps...I promise the front is quilted with wavy vertical lines.
No matter how I tried I could not make the quilting show up in a photo!
