Awesome Reflective Gear

Awesome Reflective Gear

My family loves taking evening walks and we always carry a flashlight so this will be a bonus to catch the light from it as this yarn really reflects! Once I received Red Heart's Reflective Yarn, I immediately started on this Awesome Reflective Gear Harness for my son.Awesome Reflective Gear | Red Heart Reflective Yarn Review |Thumbs way up from A FREE Pattern, too!

He feels like a superhero in it, he thinks it's the coolest thing, and he'll wear it all day. He was 8! Score!

The picture above was taken with a flash indoors, but walking around in the evening, it catches the light now and again. This is NOT intended as safety gear. This is purely for fun. If you need safety gear, contact a local sports and outdoor retailer.
