Ivory Sweater Make-over.

Do you see this lovely ivory sweater I bought for $5.00 on clearance? I got an extra big one so I could alter it and have fabric to make little embellishments.
(I washed it first...don't want any shrinkage.)


So this is what I did: took up the sides, and cut out little circles for flowers out of the pieces that were cut off.

Then serged the edges of the flowers. (Not sure that was necessary.)


Then I kind of pinched them in the middle and sewed them, creating little flowers.


Next they were sewn together on a small strip of fabric creating a little corsage.


And there you have it. My ivory sweater make-over.
I think I'll wear it tomorrow...(smile)
