A Big Bow Thrifted Cardigan {DIY}

I hope you had a wonderful week-end. My week-end was pretty hectic. We arrived from Florida Friday midnight and early Saturday afternoon we had a Bar-Mitzvah party. Oh boy, have you been in a Bar-Mitzvah party? The music was pounding so loud and playing non-stop for 4 hours. And Sunday morning at 10.00 am we left for another friend's little daughter's Birthday party. Let me tell you; I did not want to get up from bed to get ready to go to the party this morning.

It was one of those beautiful soft breezy afternoon when I took a walk around our condo in Florida. I decided to wear this DIY big bow cardigan that I created not long a go but never get to wear it until that afternoon. 

There is a tree standing right in front of our porch and by the small lake that has purplish flowers. The ground under neath the tree blanket by these fallen flowers. I gathered a few flowers to create the letter 'E' {my initial} and 'a heart shape.' I was playing around try to capture  a few pretty shots with these flowers but the wind kept on blowing off the flower that it was hard to shoot a perfect letter 'E'. I tried to fix and put the flower back to it's position; I finally got these pictures.

Take an old sweater. Cut a slit in along the shoulder down to the sleeve about 7". Fold over raw edge and sew in place. Sew a piece of ribbon about 15" long to one side of neckline and another ribbon to the other side of the neckline. Tie together! Just a tip; it would be prettier if you could find a sweater that has a wide neckline. Raglan sleeve would be perfect for this style.


Thank you for stopping by!
