Fancy Cardi: For the love of bows PART 1

Sep 21, 2010

I found this plain white short sleeve cardigan for Eden at a thrift store and I wanted to embellish it in an interesting way...
I thought, A bow would look so cute, of course!
You know me.

First I cut out a long strip of mesh grey fabric about 3 1/2 inches in width.

With sewing pins attach your fabric where you want it.

Using a zig zag stitch attach the fabric to the cardi.

I added this lace on top. Really to cover up all my horrible stitching.

When I added the lace I attached one side first then puckered it and pinned it before sewing the other.

My goodness I love this girl!!
I am just DYING to try this on a "Big girl" Cardigan... SO many possibilities.



  1. I love that cardigan! Its so cute! So isn't the model!;) I can't wait to find a cardi to try it on me and my little one.
