Funny you say that, I sort of want one too! A sort of shaggy rib warmer? I made a vest for my 4YO too ... must post a pic. Perhaps I will make one for me after a few more of these baby pounds slip away?

Thanks! I keep meaning to make Totoro hats -- finally made that one and it is too big, months ago I made one that was too small ... if this Goldilocks could either make more at once or write down measurements ... might be able to get everyone duded up ala the fabulous Totoro.

I did not but I could ... eek, could I? I could try to make one! For you Sue, anything I would attempt to do. My husband and I are filling out our absentee ballots and he is trying to work out why I am smiling ... it is cuz you asked how I did it! You made my day.

First some more story -- I think you could "just do" this vest, SS! What I did was rather rough -- I just cut out two layers of fleece in 3 pieces that seemed about the right size and shape for a vest. I was going to have the seams hidden but the kids were rushing to get out and I accidentally sewed it up wrong and couldn't turn it right side out. BING!!! I noticed it looked rather sweet all shaggy like that. I added the hooks (done up all wrong too it turns out ... they are made to be on the inside. but it works!) and the pockets because he loves pockets or, pock-dits, as he calls them. Voila! Vest!

I think if I had a small child in the house I might be work it out, but I just love how yours turned out so great!
The kids I am making them for live far, far away.
I asked some random stranger at the fabric store if she would mind if I tryed a hat on her child that I just "happened" to have with me, and another mum at another store measuring her kids head so I could use the measurements......not too sure if I can keep doing that, without getting arrested!
Luckily they where both pretty cool with it.

Im hoping to make the vest for a 2 year old boy, I cant even remember what size my son was at that age.
Hes a hulking 19 year old now.

ps, glad I could make you smile.

Well, my boy is 20 months and wearing a 2T. This vest will fit him for awhile. How about I make a pattern from it?
