There is this thrift store where I live that is called the DI and I have decided that the initials stand for Divine Inspiration. Every time I go in there I find something that I can makeover or a new project that I can start on. You never know what you will find there but that is part of the fun! ( the finding!) I am in Florida this week and having so much fun, by the way! Before I left though, I had visited the DI and found this sweater combination. I had seen some cute cardigans around that were embellished with flowers and because I had a 2 piece set it was perfect for what I had in mind.
Here is the cute yellow sweater set.
I cut out 2 different sizes of flower from the shell part of the sweater.
Then I thought,"Oh, wouldn't it be cute to make a belt to match! So, I found a wide piece of elastic that I had and cut the fabric to go around the elastic.
Then I made some cute rolled flowers and attached them to felt to hold them into place.
I sewed the tube of fabric and pulled the elastic through.
Finished off the edges and sewed 3 hook and eyes to the back.
I then attached the rolled flowers.
Here is the finished divine inspiration!
The belt which is quite comfortable because of the elastic.
The flowers on the neckline and I also attached some fabric knots to go between the flowers.
Here it is! I love how it turned out and believe it or not the whole project just cost $6.00!!
You can't beat that!
