Size:  161.7 KBThe last 2 Christmas gifts I made this year were for 2 of my sewing sisters. I call it a ‘vest’ even tho it really isn’t a vest. After I made them for my sisters, I liked them so much I decided I had to have one too. Aprons don’t really work for me, but I don’t always have pockets for all my ‘stuff’ so I designed this to hold the things I tend to misplace (phone, Ipod, scissors, reading glasses, measuring tape, etc.) while I’m sewing. I also added a small pin cushion

    8. The width of the arm cover. Drape your tape measure over the arm and decide how much drop you want on the inside and the outside. Mine are pretty narrow because I was short on fabric…next time I’ll make them a little wider.

    After my recent post Quilted Recliner Slipcover-thing several of you asked for a tutorial, so here goes my first tute on QB. Feel free to post questions or PM me. I included lots of pictures. The link above is to the first cover I made. Figure 1 shows the finished project that you’ll see in this tutorial.

I think I'm going to try to find one a couple shades lighter, but in my little town that may not be possible. We'll see. I'll just remove the eyes she has on the regular dress side. I think the nightgown side is okay as it
