Suggested fabrics

Exterior:  I like to use vintage woolen blankets, but you can use any warm fabric such as wool, wool blends, corduroy or velvet.  Fleece and WindPro are also suitable fabrics.  You could also use quilting cottons for a spring weight vest.
Lining: Cotton, linen, flannel or other soft breathable fabric.


Fabric requirements

To make a Crossroads Vest, you will need the amounts listed in the charts below for both lining and exterior fabrics (44 inches/115cm wide).

Other supplies & notions

  • Spool of coordinating thread
  • Button(s) or toggle(s)
  • Cord elastic for fastening loops (optional - enough to make a loop to go over each button). Allow  approximately 7” (18cm) per loop, as you need some length in order to tie the knot.
