These suspenders literally took me TEN MINUTES, I timed myself, that's 10 minutes to make them and to take photos for this tutorial! That's fast. They are SOOOO easy and adorable!!! 

This is what you'll need (I used "swimsuit elastic" because it's a natural color that will match khaki pants, and it's super soft!) 
measurements are for size 12 months to 2t, adjust length if you need :)

**It also works with 1" elastic-JoAnn's sells some colored elastic in the notions section
***JoAnn's is also where I purchased the vest buckles-in the notions section
****You can buy suspender clips at any fabric store, I bought my round ones on etsy. 

Step 1: Step 1

Step 1: thread one vest buckle like pictured and fold it under to hide the raw edge
<p>What are the length of the elastics. I would like to make a set for my 3 year old, suggestions on length for those?</p>
The suspenders are just great. Downloading the pdf does not work - oh well
Agreed! Totally adorable!
Thanks so much!!
Adorable! I wonder if my little guy would wear these...hmm, have to give it a go! Great tutorial! :)

Scooped. I was going to say adorable too. Instead &hellip; <br> <br>A handsome accouterment for a young gentleman. <br> <br>
Wow, thanks! Made me smile :)
