What better time of year to get crafty than around the holidays? This week, we’re welcoming four of our favorite fashion bloggers to Story by ModCloth to re-imagine a classic ModCloth item: the Charter School Cardigan. Today, Elycia of Love, Elycia presents a pretty, elbow-patched cardi:
Hi there! Elycia here from the blog Love, Elycia. The Charter School Cardigan in Honey is one of my most favorite basics. For this project, I wanted a subtle DIY that would make me love it even more, and fancy it up just a bit. I replaced the yellow-hued buttons with clear, sparkly ones, and elbow patches in a similar color, but a totally different texture.
Elycia’s Charter School Cardigan DIY
Small scissors or nail clippers
Fabric that doesn’t fray
Pencil & paper
Remove the buttons using small scissors or nail clippers. I removed one and then sewed the new button on immediately, as I found it easier to position the new button right after I took the old one off.
Enjoy your fancy new Charter School Cardigan! — By Elycia of Love, Elycia
