Convert a Sweater into a Cardigan!

September 5, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Delia made this nifty tutorial at IAmMomaHearMeRoar on converting a sweater into a cardigan. What a great idea for taking a beloved sweater that might be a wee bit worn, outdated, or ill-fitting and spiffing it up. Grab a few unique buttons and a bit of fabric (we like using grosgrain ribbon for a decidedly retro look!), and go to town. P.S. As we all know, cardigans aren’t only for librarians.
