This little vest was made specifically to enter into the fall fair. I have no little children or grandchildren, but I did have this pre-printed vest panel in my stash. So when I saw the category for a child’s vest, I decided to make this to enter. Maybe someday the right child will come along to receive this vest. Maybe someday I will have grandchildren. One can only hope!
The panel was quilted to a flannelette backing with no batting, making it light enough to wear comfortably. The quilting design is a crayon pattern done in a contrasting yellow thread that adds a bit of fun to the vest.
It was then lined with an alphabet print, top stitched and then buttons and buttonholes added. It won first prize at each of the fairs where it was entered. Nice outcome!
