DD asked if I could make her another therapy vest, to use with her Occupational Therapy kids. 

Are the therapy vests weighted?  Is the picture one she bought or one you made?  I haven't made a buttonhole in ages either and would need to take out my Bernina instructions to know where to start.

One kit caught my eye

I see why it caught your eye.  You may find some complimentary fabrics.  It would be a very nice center piece of a wallhanging, table runner, table cloth or quilt.

Pirate, I love the France scene, how pretty.  

Here is what I finished.  Still a lot more to do!

The first one is a watering can.  We had an estate sale at the guild a while back and these were on the freebie table.  She had already done the applique, so I went ahead and finished them.  The first one has little clear gems on it and those are wooden buttons.  This is a wall hanging for a friend.

The next one is 2 watering cans and I decided to add some applique birds on it.  This was a top that I finished.  Makes a nice table runner.

not these.  They are "therapy" in the sense that she uses them to do Occupational Therapy with her patients to work on their DLS's (daily living skills - ha, I know the lingo now).  I tease her that she gets to play with kids toys and call it work.  She's been keeping track of her business expenses for her taxes, it's all going to be kid toys.

That makes them a little easier to put together.    Activities of daily living-ADLs

You got the idea of it.  That's what counts.  All professions have their mysterious initial vocabulary.  Always a guessing game for others.

We're on a road trip this weekend. I'm working on my Hawaiian applique Forever Project.

I'm halfway done with this block.

I like the fabric. Is that from SAS?
