Pant Leg Vest
Start by cutting off the leg of your pants. Take the leg and open it up by slitting open one side. Measure on your child how long you want the vest and cut to that length with an extra 2 inches. Now, fold over all cut edges.
Stitch the edges down. On the ends I wrap stitch or push the needle through on one side, pull taunt, then pulling around push through again from the same side you originally pushed through. This will eliminate any gaps created from folding over the cut edge.
Now, measure on the child where to place the arm holes. Using the lip of a cup draw a circle on the measured areas and cut them out. Have the child put it on again to make sure they fit comfortable.
Have them put on a futuristic fashion show! Write down the uses or imaginative things they come up with while wearing it in your kids journal! Have fun and try not to make a pin cushion out of your fingers!!!!!
