I refashioned this sweater for my sister’s Christmas gift.
In addition to the sweater this was all I needed. A button, a hairband and a strip of fabric.
First I cut the sweater up the middle.
After pressing under one side of the strips of fabric, I pinned it to the sweater right sides together.
And positioned the half hairband where I wanted the button to be.
I then sewed the strips onto the sweater and folded it over and pinned in place.
Then sew all around the strip on both sides.
Now you’re ready to sew your button in place.
And wahlah! You have a cardigan. I’ll have my sister send me a picture of her wearing the sweater and I’ll post it later.
