Special Interest Saturday: Vests!
Wow! It has been WAY TOO LONG since I last did Special Interest Saturday!
Just a reminder/recap since it’s been so long: since I spend most Saturdays indulging in my special interest, I thought I would share with the community by posting a photoset of a project I’ve been working on every Saturday. Many Saturdays have gone by and I’ve only posted two (therapy hat and princess patches) but I still really hope to make it a weekly or biweekly tradition!
So this week’s project is vests! I thought I’d share the ones I’ve made for my family and one of my own.
1: The Orion Jacket
I made this jacket for my mom for her birthday because she loves astronomy and her favorite constellation is Orion. It also has a Scorpio patch because that’s her astrological sign, a fractal patch because she loves fractals, and lots of little star studs.
2: The Fandom Jacket
My little sibling Molly aggressively participates in many fandoms (we must be related!), chiefly my little pony. So for her birthday I made her a jacket featuring patches and pins from her favorite fandoms, including MLP, Harry Potter, doctor who, warrior cats, Pokemon, and adventure time.
3: The Aggressively Feminist Jacket
My sibling Kera is just that— aggressively feminist. So I made them this jacket for their birthday. The light kind of blocked it out, but on the front there’s a heart-shaped beyonce pin! It took a lot of willpower not to steal that one for myself!
4. The Default Jacket
Finally, on the bottom, is my first jacket; lovingly titled “The Default Jacket” because every patch and pin there belongs exactly where it is, but the theme follows neither rhyme nor reason. I made all of the patches on The Default Jacket myself except for the Night Vale one. You might recognize the Pocahontas patch on the back from my “princess patches” SIS post earlier, and my crown jewel is the “eat or die” eating disorder recovery ribbon patch. I’m not sure if I’m going to add anything more to the front, the back definitely needs more, but it hasn’t figured out what yet.
I also have 4 other jackets (for myself!) in the making. Two of them are called “The Queer Jacket” and “The Ariel Jacket,” the other two haven’t figured out what they want to be when they grow up yet! Though one of them is leaning toward becoming another astronomy jacket, because dang, that one is really cool and I want one of my own.
Thanks for letting me share my special interest everyone!!
