Back to my post today, I did refashion again and turned a very boring sweater into a cardigan for my lil Emmi. To help myself and my readers get rid of boring because many bloggers did the same refashioning, I made a cardigan in grandad-style. You can do it for girls, boys or maybe yourself too. All you need is a sweater and some fabric, scraps are welcome.
I remember that a reader said that she loves the combo of pink and yellow. Me too, just don´t know why :)
Pictures below are my sweater-or-Tshirt-into-cardi-making process.
1. Find the center of sweater/T-shirt. Cut.
2. Cut collar as a normal grandad cardi (V-shape)
3. Make binding or add trim as desired. Binding will make it into classic grandad cardigan but trim may add more extravagant spice, especially if your girl will wear the cardi. Anyway, I added binding because I have a tube fabric on hand. It should be a belt for a pleated play-dress (certainly sewn by mom, Yellow and Pink again), but Emmi doesn´t like wear that dress with belt. So I give it a new life. You can make binding from scraps too. Very extravagant!
4. Use another cardi as pattern to make sure that the new cardigan will fit. Mark or pin then sew
Make button holes, sew matched buttons on. Add more spices as you want and you have a new cardi finally!
