Valentine Sweater Refashion Tutorial

Remember the sweater I turned into a cardigan about a month ago?  Well, I couldn't leave well enough alone and had to mess with it some more.  Actually, I loved it as it was but it was the best option for this  fun Valentine's Day sweater that has been causing me sleepless nights...


The project is pretty straight forward...Cut some hearts out of felt and sew them on the collar of a cardigan.  You don't really need more direction than that.  I used some National Nonwovens red wool felt. The stuff is thick and soft and just has a great hand to it.  For contrast, I used pink embroidery floss in an X shape to attach the hearts onto the sweater.  The best part is that after the holiday, I can easily clip them all off and have my sweater back ;)
