Tribal vest

You will need: vest, scis­sors, bead­ing nee­dle, iron-on in­ter­fac­ing, light­weight fab­rics, a se­lec­tion of but­tons and beads.

01 Wash and iron your fab­rics. Trace your shapes (on page 89) onto the pa­per side of the ironon in­ter­fac­ing.

02 Roughly cut around the edge of the shapes.

03 Iron the in­ter­fac­ing pa­per-side up onto the back of your fab­ric. 04 Cut out the shapes. 05 Peel the in­ter­fac­ing pa­per off the back of the shapes.

06 Lay your shapes fab­ric-side up (and glue-side down) on to the vest, then iron into po­si­tion one row at a time.

07 Us­ing a sewing ma­chine, and with a small zigzag stitch in a con­trast­ing-col­ored thread, sew around the edge of the big­ger shapes. Straight stitch over the top of the smaller shapes (see the tem­plates for stitch de­tails).

08 Sew on beads and but­tons as per your de­sign, or go free flow. Wear with cut-offs, boots, and await glow­ing com­pli­ments.
