Cardi Remakes

My latest passion....remaking. I saw a great article in a magazine that inspired me and now I have tons of great ideas for "remaking" clothing.

This was formerly a sweatshirt. I cut it up the middle, chopped off the bottom and the sleeves, added some fabric and some buttons.

This is also a sweatshirt. I cut off the bottom and the sleeves. Then I cut up the back and put in some fabric to make a sort of pleat. Same thing on the sleeves. It needed something more, so I put on some bows. I love bows and ribbon! The fabric is kind of vintage and the appliques are also vintage. I did some decorative zig zag along the edges. Wish my machine had more stitches!

Very comfy!!

I am anxious to try some more ideas that I have....stay tuned!!
