My sister wanted to cross-stitch her own Palestinian vest and had been asking my mom to do the sewing for a long time, but my mom didn’t feel like it. Then I went on a vacation to visit my family in Egypt and the request was made to me instead, and since I normally have little to do while I’m there, I said yes :)
We chose the pattern that I printed, cut the fabric pieces out and basted along the seam lines as a guide for the embroidery.
My sister Basma did all the embroidery work, then I sewed the vest finished.
I cut all pattern pieces twice, to fully line it.
I think it looks great with jeans and a T :)
