A Borrowed Idea

When I went to Sew It Together in Canberra we went to the markets and looked at all manner of wonderful stuff.  I saw some cardigans with buttons sewn on; I resisted the urge to buy it as it was one of those crafts where you think to yourself 'I could do that'.  Most of the time I never get around to actually doing it so I was very impressed with my efforts this time round!

These two cardigans cost me $50 for the pair from Cotton On.  They are a great fit and between the black and the grey I can always find a match for whatever dress or skirt I happen to be wearing.

I did these last year while the Olympics was on, it is a great example that sometimes simple is best and that you don't have to be an expert create something nice.  For some reason I never got around to blogging them but given my lack of finished projects of late I thought I would pop these up now.  Better late than never!


  1. They look cute I like the grey one! I take it that you just added extra buttons betweent he button holes?

  2. Yes AJ, that is all I did, it really was simple. I wore them to school a lot last year :)

  3. I bought a cardigan like that from the Melbourne markets a few years ago...I love it and so many people comment on it. I will remove the buttons when the cardigan is too old and re do another myself. Yours look great. xx
