T-shirt Upcycle to Cardigan
Once I found the center, I cut right up the middle. This step always makes me nervous ever since I was a child and tried to cut a collar on a coat to make it narrower. It was a disaster but I try not to think about it that much and just cut.
Once it was cut, I decided to use the hem from another t-shirt that I had cut up for another project.
I cut two pieces of the hem of the t- shirt long enough to cover the edge of the cardigan and wrap around the top and bottom edge. I folded over the edge and pinned
Then I pinned it to one side of the cardigan. Making sure to fold over the top and bottom.
I then ran it thru my sewing machine with brown thread and using the hem stitch to guide me with my sewing. I repeated the process on the other side and was surprised by the results!
So different and now it is a cardigan! I love it and wore it over the weekend and plan to wear it to work this week since layers are a good thing!
