Yeehaw Cowboy

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.

Then I sewed the circle onto the vest.
