10 Minute Cardigan Sweater Refashion

10 Minute Cardigan Sweater Refashion

From the Blogger: "Cardigans are fantastic for layering clothing during in-between seasons. All it takes to refashion a sweater into a cardigan is about 10 minutes, one simple cut, and two strips of fabric! Super fast and easy, great for beginners! This is a fantastic way to repurpose a jumper that doesn’t fit quite perfectly or you just never wear as it is. Get some matching bias tape or make your own to match your sweater. Cut down the center of the sweater, sew on the bias tape (with a special trick for perfectly finished ends!), and add on buttons or snaps if you want! The perfect spring or fall garment!"
