So this summer while visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Calgary, Alberta we took the boys to their first rodeo.
Sam has since become obsessed with everything cowboy. So this years costume was obvious.
For the vest I went straight to the queen of DIY, Dana over at Made and she of course had this fabulous tutorial for a cowboy vest (she’s just too good isn’t she). I love her sewing tutorials. They are always so straight forward and she always gives so many options for making changes. I used her pattern piece but changed the vest to what I was looking for.
I printed off the pattern piece (just 2 pieces of paper taped together). Cut out one piece on the fold for the back of the vest and 2 pieces for the front.
So simple to sew together.
Bought 1 yard of this cool fringe at Joanne’s Fabrics. Simply sewed it along the bottom.
So this little badge was the hardest part for me. I cannot draw a star for the life of me. To attach the star to the circle I used iron on transfer paper (so that I didn’t need to sew it on). If I can’t even draw a star I certainly can’t sew a star! Then I sewed the circle onto the vest.
