Community helper vests-part 2 Mail Carrier

The girls handing out some imaginary mail.
The mail carrier vests are made entirely from felt.  The good news is that felt from JoAnn Fabrics is completely washable and dryable (on a low heat).  I made my own binding on these, which was really difficult because the felt was too thick to pin.  I ended up using binder clips to hold it on until I could sew it.  I do not think I will ever use felt for binding again.

These vests are probably my favorite.  They look very sharp and I was able to buy real USPS patches at this website.
Of course, now the girls are prompting me to make mail out of felt for them, too!
