So I told you that I'd work on some boy based projects. Well, I have. Unfortunately I don't have a tutorial to share with you. I have step by step photos and notes, but I am not confident enough in my process to share them with you yet. Hopefully I'll attempt the project again, because I love the little sweater vest, but no promises. I really have a short attention span for projects, so if you really want a tutorial let me know....otherwise it might not happen.
Anywho....I made a little sweater vest for Miles. The cranberry colored knit was from an old sweater that I'd stashed in the refashion pile. I love the color, especially paired with the charcoal ribbed knit, and the green buttons.
It has a small faux pocket on one side of the vest that was made from the ribbed knit of the original sweater.

When I look at the little vest I envision Miles sitting in a wing backed leather chair, reading a book. . .so that's why it's the "I'll be in my study" vest.
So, let me know if this is a boy project that interests you. I have another boy themed project lined up for this week, and it includes a tutorial and templates-Woot Woot!
Thanks to those of you who took the time to answer the questions on my poll. I'll be adding a couple of new questions to the side bar, just to get to know you even better. May I say that I'm excited that so many of you own sergers (nearly 40% of those that answered). I feel bad posting tutorials that require serging, because I lived without one for so long. I'm still going to try to provide instructions and adaptations for those of you that don't have one, but I might not shy away from exploring some serging techniques.
Also, it seems that most of you fall somewhere between the advanced beginner and intermediate sewing levels. Sometimes I feel like I'm explaining steps in my tutorials that are common knowledge. I don't want to insult your intelligence, but I do want to make sure that even the beginners can feel confident in tackling some fun projects.
Thanks for reading!
