MY CARDIGAN UPCYCLE
My cardigan Upcycle!!!
Some time ago I added some pretty lace to an otherwise plain cardigan.
Click the photo to see my original post.
I saw a beautiful cardigan here in Korea that had the cutest embellishments and I was inspired. Having found some lovely fabric at Happy Quilt and some really cute patches in the Fabric District in Seoul, I went to work laying out a design on my cardigan.
The first thing I did was make a heart with a B (for Beverly) embroidered on it. I used my awesome new sewing/embroidery machine that my Eric bought for me.
I stitched the heart on to my cardigan.
Then I added pockets.
I pulled out my collection of vintage buttons and I found two lovely blue glass buttons with birds on them. I added one to each pocket to make a bow.
Then I started adding some of my cute sew-ons.
And here is the finished project.
Then you just know I had to make a handbag to go with my cardigan.
It is reversible
Some of my jewelry just happened to by close by so I snapped a photo. The brooch is my newest old piece of jewelry. I will feature my brooches here on m blog one day.
And here I am with my cardigan and my handbag!!!
Although it is still winter here in Korea, I can feel Spring calling out to me.
