Saving a cardigan for later: Recycled sweater project

recycled cardigan ideaWoah, it has been a while since my last update on here. Sometimes life gets in the way of the simple living. I never meant to step away for so long but I am glad to be back!

I wanted to share a simple project I recently did in just a few minutes to rescue a cardigan from the back of my closet. Since the cardigan seems to be the “in” fashion of the season I was about to go out and pick one up when I was updating my spring wardrobe. Then I realized I already had one wedged in the back of the closet.  It was there because the rhinestone buttons were falling off.  I used $3.00 worth of new pearlescent buttons to update the sweater to the very “now,” minimalist look. The button replacement took about half an hour of my time, and I am pleased with the results.

This may seem like a very “duh” concept to some, but for me it is a new idea. I am now looking through my closet for other items I can modify to suit my needs.

What is your favorite DIY way to update the wardrobe you already have?

    I recently cleaned out my closet and discovered several items that I’d tucked away and forgotten about. It was like going shopping in my own closet.

  2. That’s a really cool idea actually. Sometimes when a button falls off of something, I just think of it as discard, rather than getting some new buttons, duh me!

    Thanks for this idea. I will be able to fix lots of my clothes now! 😉
