The cold weather has arrived bringing with it the need to pack away spring/summer gear & bring out the fall/winter threads…and discover some fabulous forgotten bits of awesome in the process!
Buried within a box o’ sweaters were 2 identical never worn dude cardigans, I quickly snatched them up & created 4 completely different items for meself!
Let’s begin with the bodacious blue number…
Snag an oversized cardi & a long sleeved t-shirt
chop the sleeves off of the shirt
and slice them off of the cardi too!
Pop the cardi sleeves into the shirt armholes, right sides facing & underarm seams lined up & stitch together
repeat the process with the cardi & shirt sleeves
A vast improvement but still kinda plain…let’s funk it up a bit more!
Fold the cardi in half & chop out half of a heart from the back
open it up & center it on the front of the shirt
zig zag it on (chop out the fabric behind the fancy new patch if desired)
Love your rockin’ new top!
Hmmm…but what about the cardi-with-the-heart-hole-in-the-back?
Simply fill that hole with a coordinating fabric scrap…
and stitch together!
and you have a fancy new cardi that’s as fab from the back…
as it is from the front!
