T-Shirt to Baby Boy Vest

My Sewing Project


This past Christmas I received a sewing machine, and I have been very excited to learn how to sew.   I made a nursing cover in January which was a great starter project.

This past weekend I decided that I was going to make a vest for my 3 month old, Conner.  I found a tutorial at Make It & Love It, skimmed through, and decided that it didn’t look to hard.  The only problem is that I don’t like reading instructions & I am a beginner.

The result?  I spent way longer than I should have.  Considering all of the mistakes I made while making it, I thought it turned out pretty cute!  Next time I will be following instructions. I will also be making it a little bigger.  He is such a chunker!


I used an old black T-shirt of mine and some scrap material from my mom to make this vest.  I made the pattern by tracing a 3-6 month outfit he has.

I plan to make another vest soon using an old suit for material.  I will let you know how it goes and share more details on how I did it.
