Floral Applique Cardigan DIY
[Editor's Note: Appliqué is such a cute and easy way to take a boring item from your closet and remake it into something you will want to wear every day. Carly from Chic Steals was in the mood for a floral cardigan and rather than rushing out and buying one she grabbed some floral fabric and an iron and made one. For those of you that belong to the hand sewing only club let me let you in on a little secret – Heat n’ Bond is the jam. You can do so many creative things with it oh so easily, including making yourself a spiffy new cardigan. - Jen]
Carly talked about her inspiration for the cardigan: I’m so glad that Spring is finally here in all its glory – and floral items are on the top of my must-wear list for the season. But I couldn’t find any chic floral prints that I liked – and that were actually affordable – and so set out to make my own. Applique is the name of the game – and is super-simple to do if you have an iron, a pair of scissors, and a little patience! "
