Spring Sweater Refashion 2011 {#3}

8 Mar
  Welcome to the next installment in my quest to refashion my wardrobe 🙂
My third sweater refashion started off with a plain white cardigan from Target. 
Add a few chiffon flowers and you have a sweater refashion that is super easy, fast and requires no sewing machine. 
To make this easy sweater refashion, all you need is: 
  •  Chiffon fabric for the flowers.
  • a Candle
  • Buttons
  • Needle and Thread
  • Fabric Glue {optional}
  • Take your chiffon fabric and cut out four different sizes of circles.  I cut mine out as a 3 inch, 2 inch, 1.5 inch and 1 inch circles. You can use a circle template if you want a perfect circle.
  • Light a candle and burn the edges of the circles. Rotate the material slowly all the way around each circle. 
  • Once the circle edges are burned, lay the circles on the sweater in the place you want them. I arranged the circles 2-3 circles per flower. 
  • Then pin the flowers on the sweater. 
  • Now sew the buttons in the circle of each flower. 
  • The last thing to do is put a circle of fabric glue under some the edges where the flowers are droopy. Or you can put a quick stitch through the material.
Voila — you are done!! 
{total project time = 30 minutes}
Now you have a sweater with some personality!! 

I added the flowers around the back for a little fun. 
Now – go find some old sweaters and create make some new creations!!!!
