Once upon a time there was a sad little cardi.
It was not ugly…just BORING. It had been in the Good Will pile for months. It had never even been on a date!
Then one day a refashionista came and saved it from the Good Will pile and gave it a sassy new look.
So much better.
The cardi finally got to go out on a date. It had previously been used only for carpool and errands only, so this was a big day!
Do you want to take a cardi from drab to fab with me? Here we go!
You will need:
1 boring cardigan (make sure the knit is fairly small or else you’ll have problems with fraying.)
1/2 yard fun knit fabric…the sky is the limit! I personally love cheetah print.
Serger OR Sewing Machine with a jersey needle.
If using a sewing machine, make sure you use a zig zag stitch. No need to finish the edges as long as the knit on your cardi is fine.
Now add a belt and some jewelry and hit the town!
