30 Minute D I Y: Cardigan embellishment

This project from start to finish took 30 minutes!

1. Cut out one inch strips of fabric. (Smaller or larger depending on how big you want your flowers.)

2. Cut a (fairly even) square out of your strip. This makes it easier to make sure your flowers are all the same length. TIP- Be sure to use fabric that won't fray!!!

3.With the corners as your guide cute out four petal flowers. I cut out between 34 and 36 flowers.

4. Now find the cardigan you want to use. I would lay out the petals in the arrangement you want so you like how it looks and so you are sure you have enough.

5. With thread similar to the color of your flowers stitch them on. (I used 2-3 larger stitches per flower.)
SEEEEE so easy!

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. I am so in love with this. I am going to try and recreate it. It is PERFECT!! Found your blog through Doehler Days.

  12. oh my goodness.

    i am in love.

    your blog is flippin gorgoues.

    a true gem!

    i totally posted about this. had to.


  13. Thank you for contributing this to 's DIY Tutorial Linky Party.

    It's beautiful and well presented. And I love it that we can do this craft in half an hour. My kinda idea of a good craft: Not to difficult, fast and great result.

    So.... if you have a new & equally wonderful tutorial you wish to share with us this week, come on over. We just opened a new linky party for this week's greatest talented artisans out there! (and you are one of them ;-0)


  14. What a clever project! I may just start wearing cardigans again! I found you through Green Submarine, just thought you'd want to know. Again, great project!

  15. I love this! Can't wait to try it!

  16. Great Stuff! I've linked a number of your projects. Thanks for sharing!

  17. I was so inspired by this post that I had to share it on my blog, too! Thank you for the great DIY project!

  18. I know this post is old but I love how easy and quick this sweater is! Would you mind resurrecting it for a guest post on my craft blog?


  19. I love this concept and I'm biting at the bit to try it out, but I'm just curious what the wash instructions would be for the final product. Do I need to worry about the flowers curling over if I machine wash?

  20. if you use some sort of polyester you should be fine to wash it as usual {thats what sophie used}... some jersey will curl though, be warned! :)


  21. I saw this project and was so excited!!!  I started cutting felt flowers at 9:00 pm last took me at least 2 hours to cut out the flowers...tonight I will start sewing them on.  Are you sure it only took you 30 minutes?

  22. Dang, should have read this post first.  I used an old T-shirt, and though it looks great, the petals fold over as I wear it.  I'm going to tack down the ends of the petals and see if that helps.

    This is brilliant! I just refashioned a shrug out of a stained tee for my daughter and was looking for something to pretty it up. Thank you for sharing! :)

    I used two inch squares, and it worked much better than the one inch squares. I started out with the smaller flowers, but they took too long to cut out and didn't look as nice.
