|I finally found where this came from - it's here - but they don't sell them anymore.|
I had a dark gray cardigan that was too boring and a lighter gray henley-type shirt that looked horrible on me. I liked the contrast. Cutting out appoximately 50 'flowers' was super fun (feeling the sarcasm?). Sewing them on was like spending time in a field full of flowers with no bees reading a great book.
As you can see from the photo below, just the flowers sewn on was not enough flair for me (NO sarcasm - I LOVE FLAIR!), so I then hand sewed every button into place.
|Buttons or no buttons? Definitely Buttons! They tied the whole thing together!|
Once it was finished (I did not count hours - I didn't care how long it took - I wanted this cardigan!), I couldn't keep it. It now required hand washing. So I gave it to my mom...I know she will take proper care of it.
(Yes, I did spend days making this and then refused to spend minutes washing it - sounds dumb when you put it like that. So shut it.)
|This is my beautiful mother who made me promise to cut her head off in this picutre.|
