Here is yesterday's project: a boy-sized visibility vest.
Its part Bob-the-Builder; part sophisticated Boy Tracking Device. I was inspired by a canny, op-shopping friend, who picked up a similar vest for a song, then altered it for her 3 year-old. You can see her little boy anywhere at the park in those reflective strips. Genius.
For this re-fashion I cut a new shape from an adult vest, added a bias binding trim and a new Velcro closure. A second Find-Me-At-The-Park vest is underway, so that the boys will have one each. They will be very handy, as during playground visits Argy is prone to ensconcing himself in dense shrubbery and Bargy is a good, old-fashioned bolter.
Which makes me think: attaching a long piece of retractable elastic to each vest probably wouldn't go astray.
