DIY- Y not?!
I was looking through my fabric box the other day, and found a few scraps of cute fabric. What to do with them I thought? Hmm then I saw a plain vest... Lets put them both together, and make it Hello Kitty Chic (of course I had to get Hello Kitty in there somewhere!!) Hope you like it, let me know what you think!

I can't remember how long it took me as I sewed it by hand...

    I decided where I wanted to put Kitty (on the left side near the bottom) and pinned her head on. [It helps having a dress makers dummy, so you know where everything sits!]
