DIY recycled rosette cardigan

diy rosette cardigan step 5 close up
Happy Wednesday everyone, I thought I'd share a little something of what I have been up to lately. Today I added a little flair to this boring old cardigan I never wore. I saw this and this on anthropology so I decided to cut up an old t-shirt my husband was throwing away and made these adorable little roses to attach to my cardigan.

here is a step by step tutorial

step 1: Cut a strip off an old t-shirt

step 2: Twist it

Step 3: Roll in a spiral shape and stitch in place.

(Finished rosette)

step 4: Stitch rosette(s) to cardigan
