C.O.M. Fashion Friday- {Sweater Re-Fashion from Flamingo Toes}

Hi! My name is Bev and I blog over at Flamingo Toes!

I’m so thrilled to be here as a part of Jen’s Fashion Fridays!!

I have been wanting to do a sweater refashion for a while – and when I saw Ellie G’s over at Less Cake More Frosting – I knew the direction I wanted to go!

I love the swirls she painted on – I think they’re just darling.

And so is she – how cute is this picture!!!

Here’s my version!

I got out my flocked heat transfer from Silhouette and got to swirling!

I started with a Target cardigan – which I got all excited about and didn’t take a before picture of.

I snagged one for you from Target with a perky model in it.

I cut out my swirls with my Silhouette – but I tried to make them fairly simple swirls for you.

If you like the design but don’t have a Silhouette, you could buy the heat transfer material and cut them out by hand, or you could paint them on with a freezer paper stencil like Ellie G!

Email me and I’ll send you either the image file or the Silhouette file. 😉

I used the white flocked transfer material and ironed on my swirls first –

I changed out the buttons so they were a combination of white, black and gray.

I made a few fabric flowers too – one from chiffon, one from lace, one from ribbon and one from fabric.

I wanted some contrast in the flower styles and fabrics.

That’s it!! Such an easy refashion but I love the way it turned out!

And a picture so you can see it on . . .

I hope you like it!!
