20-Minute Spring Sweater Redo

24 Mar
I had some leftover supplies from a few projects and decided to redo one of my Spring sweaters. 
I used some buttons covers from my Spring Ring Project, some fabric scraps from my Spring Burlap Wreath and some ric rac from a project that’s being posted tomorrow.

I hardly ever wore this sweater before because it was always kind of — BLAH… So — if you want a quick, easy way to add some pizazz to a sweater — try this!
  1. First I covered the buttons with fabric. Very easy — use a pencil eraser to push the prongs through the material and then snap on the back.
  2. Then I cut off the existing buttons. 
  3. Next,  I took a piece of big ric rac I had laying around and stitched it onto the sweater — right over where the buttons were. {If you don’t have a machine, you could use fabric glue or Stitch Witchery} I tucked the ends of the ric rac under the top and bottom of the sweater and they were secure when I stitched it into place.
  4. Then  I used a needle and thread to attach the new buttons to the sweater. 

I like the way the ric rac peeks through from under the edge of the sweater. Very fun! I am going to look around for a pink or blue sweater to do it with next!
Have a great day!

Trendy Tuesdays: If I Could Have A Do-Over

20 May
I had the best time this weekend visiting with my two college roommates. We hadn’t all been together in 15 years! It was so fun to laugh and reminisce about our funny college times. I am excited to post pictures soon of our reunion soon!{photo by Rebekah Westover Photography}

One of my roommates just got engaged. I am so excited for her. She wants to have a 40’s-inspired wedding dress – how cool is that? It got me thinking about my own wedding. My tastes have changed so much since then. Wouldn’t it be fun to plan a wedding now? What would I choose?


I think I would choose a clean, classic silhouette.

With some great details.
Or maybe I would opt for a classic suit or tea-length dress.

If you could have a re-do, what would you pick?
Would you stick with your original dress or go with something completely different?
