I didn't have time to write before we went away but I finished the vest last week and I have to say it just fits like a glove! It was quite an interesting and fun challenge - a little nerve racking since all the pieces have to be cut out from the felt fabric just produced, each piece used to the best advantage so not to waste all that hard work. First I put together the basic pieces - front, back and sides and then had to determine what came next to make it special and since the fabric had leaves and I had repeated this design element further by stitching more leaves throughout the base fabric after felting, they seemed a natural to frame the neckline. It was just the touch it needed to bring it all together. The idea for the pin closure matching the deeper blue knit top that the vest will be worn over was my brilliant daughter, Jenni's - she has just the right fashion sense whereas, I would have had it be more matchy, matchy (and showing my age!). The pin and the deeper blue just added the perfect pizazz and I couldn't be more pleased!
