I have a few sweaters in my closet and some that I don't wear very often, (I know it is a little too hot today to wear a sweater, but fall will be coming.) I have been thinking of some ways to re purpose them and here is the first one that I chose to work on. I had some black pleated trim that I thought would look cute on it.
I added the trim around the neckline and then 2 more strips on the sides of the front of the sweater.
I decided it needed a little something more and then just added the pleating in a circle and it made a cute flower.
I added a button to the center of the flower.
I added a belt but you wouldn't have to wear it with a belt.
I think it would look cute with some black skinny jeans as well, but I was too lazy to change and besides it is pretty hot outside today.
I liked the finished results and am now trying to think how I could re purpose some more sweaters in my closet. This transformation cost about $2 because I got the trim at Hobby Lobby with my 40% coupon.
Not bad for a new sweater.
