First things first, What you’ll need:

  • Fabric, if you’re making the reversible version, pick 2 coordinating ones
  • thread
  • ribbon, or button & elastic or frog clasp
  • Your pattern piece printed (download it here)

A couple notes:

  • The ribbon version is reversible, the other options are not
  • This is a super fast project. 15 minutes tops.
  • It’s meant for toddlers, but it fits me too…
  • I didn’t notice until I was finished just how Christmas-y this colour scheme was. For this, I’m sorry. I trust you will do better.
  • Don’t judge me by my photo lighting…
  • If you’re making this for a tiny toddler, I’d recommend placing a pleat in the center of the back.
