Here's the 1st success!
Here's a close-up of the front fabric texture:
The glossy black of the back was hard to capture.
Maybe I'll be able to get a better picture later.
I was SO excited at how well it turned out.
Maybe I'll get better pictures later when I don't
have to hide in the bathroom while taking them.
(No prying eyes in there! Finally!
When they were younger, I wasn't

Now before I show you progress on the 2nd vest,
here's proof that I did actually do this myself! :)
I have this one together. I just need to clip the curves
and turn it. Sew the side seams together and
sew a finishing edge all the way around
the perimeter of the vest.
I hope to have it done by Wednesday
so I will have time to clean the house
before Saturday for the birthday guests!
In case you forgot what the front looks like:
Stay tuned for this one.
The Cowboy will LOVE it!
