Gray Cardigan Refashion

droopy and shapeless

I had this cardigan which while I liked the material it was made from I always wore it belted because otherwise it looked a little dated.

pretty details - but pretty boring as a whole

I had another cardigan that was almost the same color. This one was cropped and I NEVER wore it except maybe once in 2001.

one little insert - one big change

I cut up the shorter cardigan to make an insert that I stitched in place in a triangle shape under the right arm.

I cut up more of the short cardigan to make a long rectangle that I stitched to the top of the collar of the longer cardigan creating a wide piece that I could wrap around and toss over my shoulder. The triangular insert under the right arm gives the sweater room for me to wrap it and throw it over my shoulder.

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
