embellished cardigan tutorial
August 31, 2011 By 37 Comments
Another project made so much easier with my Go! Baby cutter. Love this thing, seriously. This project couldn’t have been simpler, too.
I thrifted this really nice silk cardigan and shell awhile ago. I am not really the “shell” wearing type, so I knew I would cut it up to become ruffles or embellishments for the cardi. Then, of course, I caught a glimpse of my cutter hanging out on the shelf, and I knew I needed to use my flower die!
I cut out the 3 smallest sized flowers, and as many as I could with my fabric.
Then I layered and pinned them where I wanted. I went through and tacked each one by hand in the center of each flower.
Then, since I wanted it to lay as flat as possible, I sewed around the largest flower in each stack, just underneath the second flower’s petals.
Tada! a pretty quick update, and pretty darn cute.
