This is a LONG time UFO (UnFinished Object) that I finally finished. I don't know why I waited so long.
been wanted to do some "wardrobe refashion" for a some time, after
having read a number of blogs devoted to the practice of reworking old
clothes to make them new and funky. And cardigan sweaters are one of the
easiest things to refashion.
I had this great idea to sew some buttons on a cardigan sweater, and
decided to go with all white/clear ones on this yellow wool cardigan,
which is actually part of a twin set. I used ecru/off-white embroidery
floss to sew them on and arranged them in a swath across each front
only does this gussy up an otherwise boring sweater, but it uses up a
craft supply that I'm sure most button-collectors have a ton of--the
plain white/clear ones. It's a perfect example of how a bunch of
something looks cooler than just one of them.
did use some cool ones: all different sizes, shapes, some with
decorative etching. I got to wear this a few times before it got warm,
usually with a white T-shirt and jeans. It will, however, require hand
washing, so I need to be careful not to wear it around messy kids!
