One of the projects I was working on at the same time as the custom sweater was a little holster set. I have a three year old who is OBSESSED with pirates and now, cowboys. We had bought him a little cowboy gun set that came with a plastic holster set. It tore. Shock. So, instead of sewing on my poor, tired, in desperate need of a tune up, sewing machine, I decided to felt.
End result: a new, very stylish holster and belt that he won't take off! The pattern is available for purchase on my Etsy site, here.
