Happy Wednesday! If you live in the United States, I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July weekend. We took advantage of the holiday by wine tasting for the first time. A few friends planned such an extraordinary day and we were so lucky to be a part of such a fun group. Wine tasting in a castle? I’ve never felt so fancy.
Even though we’re in the middle of Summer, its time to start thinking about early Fall updates. Everyone has a few staples that carry over season to season, but even those go-to items start wearing out after awhile. Instead of buying a new sweater, I decided to update a cardigan I already have by doing this tutorial on Pinterest, created by Honestly WTF.
This tutorial actually inspired the birth of this blog and it was one of the first projects I ever pinned. These cute patches sat on my “to make” board for so long, begging to be made, and I hoped this blog challenge would inspire a little creative motivation. I’m so happy I finally got around to it. The patches can be made into any shape, size, or color and put on almost any fabric. Next time, I’ll make the patches a little bigger to counter the shrinkage that happens in the wash.
This project requires very few tools and materials, and takes only about one hour. How is that for a fast and inexpensive sweater update!?
TOP TIP! Instead of buying a felting sponge or foam, just use a classic green and yellow sponge. It actually worked better than the one made specifically for felting.
Thanks for reading! What other ways have you guys updated old wardrobe staples?
