The original sweater ($2.99)
I bought light blue ribbon for the bows which I think nicely complement the cream color, and I also replaced the buttons with pearly ones that blend in with the cardigan a little better. I'm not all that great with needle and thread, so Mom helped me out with the sewing part. I really enjoy this time of year before I go back to school because we usually do fun projects together, like this one.
The final product
I love it and cannot wait for cooler weather so I can wear it! I have had some Do-It-Yourself disasters in the past, but this cardigan was extremely easy to make and turned out really well. Now I'm on a DIY kick where I want to go around changing buttons on everything or adding tons of ribbon. I can't wait to decide on my next project!
