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 (I don’t like the one you wear on your wrist) for those stray pins that often end up on the floor. I quilted them to give them enough ‘body’ to handle the weight of all the ‘stuff’. It just comes down to your waist so the pockets won’t get lost in your lap as you work. I just finished mine this afternoon so I can’t tell you how well they are going to work out yet.

    I love your idea...what you have made is basically a chatelaine, but bigger, better and more useful. Now I want to make one for myself!

    Did you ever do a tut on these? I remember seeing this post and just looked it up again as I am now in the market for one. Would you mind sharing a few measurements such as how wide the back collar piece is. I love this idea and think I will finally have time to make one. Thanks
