So I got this shirt in the 6th grade. And I keep on keeping it because I like the stripes or something…and maybe the colors. But I can’t wear it because a) it’s too short and b) it’s too thick to layer with anything. And in the middle of last week’s closet-purging, in a blinding stroke of genius, I decided to make it a cardigan. But the fastest, kind of laziest way possible.
use a ruler and cut a line down the center of the front of the shirt. ok. you’re almost done.
hem the edges with your hem tape, using the instructions that came with it.
pick a button. then sew it on one of the sides where a normal button should theoretically go. it’s just for show so it looks like a legit cardigan. you’re not going to dilly-dally with making a button hole or anything because that’s just out of the realm of my patience.
now wear that bad boy with every single thing currently hanging in your closet. it will either match or not match in a purposeful looking way. bonus points if it is in some way autumn colored. like orange.
I know you probably found this on pinterest or some craft blog somewhere…or something to that effect. This isn’t a craft blog, or any specific kind of blog for that matter. maybe occasionally I’ll make or design something that I feel is worth posting, but really, I just write. I live. I manipulate words and harness emotions. maybe you should start here. and then wander on over here to pandora’s box. just promise you’ll stay a while…I’d like to get to know you.
