My son mentioned this week that he wants a Cub Scout vest.
This is the simplest thing to make. I used my son's uniform shirt to measure the width and armholes, and I cut the felt just like it looks from the Cub Scout store vest that I linked above. I then sewed the pieces together.
Cub Scout Vest
Supplies:red felt (I bought mine on sale for $1.87 a 72" yard after sale and extra discounts; you will need about 1 1/4 yards for 2 vests)
sewing machine (optional; you could sew these by hand)
Time:The total time for vest was 20 minutes
Today I made two vests. My younger son will start Cub Scouts at the beginning of next year, so I am going to give him one, too.
Cost:$0.95 per vest. That's much better than the $14.99 at the Scout store!
