DIY Embellished Sweater

Supplies: old sweater, appliqué


I decided I wasn't making a New Year's project but since the day was so relaxing I made a last minute sweater. Took me a good 5 minutes and was one of my favorites thus far. 


 I was saving this appliqué for something special and turned out lovely for our low key New Year's evening. 


Before: husband's old sweater


Added the appliqué by hand sewing around the outside edges and then cut the remainder on the inside.  
You could hot glue it as well since it was hard to sew around the beading. Really it was that simple, but finding the embellishment will be the hard part.

  2. Really lovely restyle. The applique you chose for this sweater (and found to begin with!) definitely makes this project. I posted the second finished photo down and a link back to you on my blog.

  6. Hey, I was wondering if you could tell me about how many yards of the appliqué you used? I wanted to make this but I don't really want to have to make another trip out to buy more trim.

  17. You're right, the hard part of this project is finding the beaded piece. I'm going to try this using a piece of crochet, spray paint it with metallic paint and then follow your tute. Thank you for the brilliant idea!
