I must admit that Rachel's flashback last week brought me way back. Exactly how far back, we will not divulge. Let's just say that might fall into the 'vintage' category pretty soon. This project does not harken back to the days of yore, but it has seen its fair share of use. The vest my son is wearing has been floating around for about 3 years, and it has been used and abused. It was made from some fake suede material I inherited from a friend's grandmother. There was yards and yard of the stuff, and I have made chaps, vests, Daniel Boone pants, and an Indian teepee out of it, among other things. Whatever the fiber content, it has held up amazingly well! It looks great paired with an Under Armour shirt and some flashy green shorts, don't you think?
