|Nice but over priced!|
At the time it was £50, it has since been reduced. I liked it, but I did not like the price. I'm on quite a strict budget, so my clothes need to be cheap and cheerful!
Sooooooo...... I thought 'Hey! I'm gonna try and make something similar!'
Action 1: Find dull cardigan I hardly ever wear. Check!
Action 2: Find some nice embroidery threads I have left over from other projects. Check!
Action 3: Get sewing! I used some plan bits of cotton fabric on the back. It made it easier to sew, and stopped the cardigan from gathering when I pulled the stitches.
I originally tried just a square, but it was gathering too much and was getting annoying. I settled for two rectangles to make a square.
I found it easier to use a big bit of cotton, then trim it down after. Half of my squares are wonky, but I like it even more that way.
I'm very pleased with the result, and even more pleased with the fact it cost me NOTHING. The cardigan is from H&M, but I got it 2 or 3 years ago and hardly ever wear it now. I have the same cardigan in blue, I'm going to jazz that one up next!
