Everyone’s got an old cardi that can use a cute update. Make
over your tried and true topper into a unique, stylish sweater with just a few
simple materials and a creative mind. Call up your crew, turn up the tunes and
let the cardi makeover madness begin!
Score this sweet sweater look with felt and beads. Cut the
felt into flower petal shapes. Sew each petal onto your cardigan and string on
beads for a shiny center. Contrasting colors make it cool.
Stock up on flower appliqués from the craft store and in the
same shade as your cardi. Sew on a bunch in an abstract pattern, even going
down the shoulders and sleeves. Stitch on a few sequins for a hint of sparkle.
Serious gemstones are totally in. Why not apply them to your
boring crewneck? Pick up a pack of rhinestones at your nearest craft store, and
apply them in a gradient pattern to your top with fabric glue.
