Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Reindeer Sweater Refashion, Refashion #7

I was probably the only one who got excited when I saw this sweater. I was giddy.it was soo lovely! And it is just so cold outside that I need warm winter clothes!

There were a few problems. The "buttons" (claws?) immediately started to fall off as soon as I put it on. The sweater was too long and didn't cover my hips at all. 


So we need to shorten it and fix the middle. 
basically what I did was
- fold up the bottom and sew off the excess. now the bottom band has just moved up. And now I don't have to worry about fraying
- then I removed the buttons
- lastly I converted it to v-neck top by overlapping the original middle band. I sewed down one side, across, and then up the other.

Done! A really easy refashion!




Love my new sweater! An easy fix! Perfect for these cold temperatures!

Cheers, (92 left!!)
