Not only do they love to dress up and accessorize but they also love Superheros!!!  
So it was a win, win for us.

Start by creating a vest pattern.  I used one of the boys existing vests but I am sure that you can find a quick printable pattern on etsy or somewhere.

Using a 1/4″ seam, sew the two pieces together.  Leave the top shoulder seams {in four places} open for inverting {see the top four white pins in the last photo ~ leave those spots open}.  Trim the corners off.
