Sweater re-fashion

Kohl's had some cute spring sweaters for $9.99 and I had a 20% off coupon. I've loved all the cute sweater re-fashions in the blog world these days and thought I'd give it a try.

Step 1: Cute 8, 4 inch strips of 5/8 inch gross-grain ribbon



Step 2: Fold them over to make "petals".




Step 3: Arrange them around a small felt circle into a flower and hot glue into place. (When I was done, it was a little floppy and so I actually went back and glued a bigger circle on the back)







Step 4: Cut 13 strips of 1/8 inch ribbon 3 inches long.


Step 5: Pin into petal shapes.


Step 6: Arrange thin ribbon into a flower shape and hot glue onto felt circle.

Step 7: Glue thin ribbon flower on top of the other one and hot glue a button on top (the sweater came w an extra one!). I Attached the flower with a safety pin, so I could remove before washing.



TADAAA!
I think that's a whole lotta cute for 8 bucks!

  3. Hair-bows would be cute, but I don't have anyone that would wear them. I need some more daughters.
