Hi! I’ve got another sewing project to share – I made this vest for my son for a Steampunk themed dress-up dinner we went to in NZ last month.

It is made out of a woven wrap – Natibaby Cogs. My husband used to wear his daughter in a sling (I’m calling them slings even though there are lots of names for them) when she was little and we did the same for Marcus after he was born. I must say I have fallen down the rabbit hole with this babywearing business and into the world of beautiful fabrics! (Don’t worry, I didn’t cut up one of my slings, but bought this woven wrap relatively cheaply purely for the purpose of chopping it and making it into this vest).

It was a beast to work with, but turned out pretty well in the end 🙂
