DIY No-Sew Dress Up Vests
6) Place velcro dots or squares at the opening of the vest so it can be closed to stay on while being worn (if desired). If you would like to sew on small pieces of velcro, buy the ones that do not have a sticky back.
Then you can sew a couple of stitches through the velcro to secure it to the bag.
You could also cut small holes down the front and loop long shoe laces through the holes for lacing and tying practice.
6) Time to decorate with glitter glue, fabric paint or acrylic paint!
Wear a paint shirt or smock because the glitter glue and fabric paint will not come out of clothing when washed.
Both my toddler’s vest on the left and my preschooler’s vest on the right were decorated based on their own creativity-and my help. These could be made for any imaginary play: police, fire fighter, teacher, doctor, etc. You could make some for your children with specific symbols or lettering.
