And this is what I did...
So, I searched and searched and I couldn't find any picture tutorials. Finally, I folded the regular vest back up like a bag and I saw how simple it was. Now I can make it very easy for anyone else that wants to do the same.
First you need a brown grocery bag.
Next, open it up and cut that little "V" at the bottom of the bag.
Now, flatten the bag and cut straight up the middle. I cut my line on the back of the bag. That way the printed side will end up on the inside back of the vest.
Fold the bag in half and cut out a 1/2 circle for the neck. Also, cut the bottom off to make your vest the desired length.
Unfold the bag and flip it inside out. You now have your vest.
You can crumple it to give it that leathered look and you can add fringe to your bag.
Our kindergardeners are going to do that part themselves.
Well, there you have it, 22 vests cut and ready. I'm so glad it's done.
