Sweatshirt into cardigan tutorial


Step 1: Find a plain sweatshirt in need of some jazzing up. 😉


Step 2: As with my t-shirt to keyhole cardigan tutorial, fold the back shoulders together and iron down the front center of the shirt so your cut will be even. ✂ Then cut straight down the front.


Step 3: Pick out your preferred color of bias trim and add this over your cut edges. I went with a neutral look for this cardi (I love color so this is unusual for me).


Step 4: Embellish!! Again, I went for a simple look & just placed some buttons symmetrically but you can jazz it up as much as you want. ENJOY & HAPPY CREATING!

    What a lovely idea to make something so plain into an individual item! Those buttons really lift the garment!
