When I saw this week theme,I took inspiration from the definition…

re: : preposition: about; on the subject of
fashion: :a style that is popular at a particular time, especially in clothes, hair, make-up, etc

So I was making the subject of what is popular and since ‘hearts’ are popular on my books, I did a very simple DYI Re-fashion
I’m sorry I did really sew something complicate. I missed the boat with valentines dress but I was determine to contribute this week even if was something that doesn’t require that many skills.

Cut the sleeves off and make the hearts appliqué .

Hearts appliqué: You will need:
Heart templates,
Embroidery needle and thread
Sewing machine optional (I used my embroidery stitches from mine machine)

Cut the heat shapes, sew a running stitch to join the together and the button.
Pin or baste in place and embroider the hearts on the cardigan
For the curled effect, stretch the cardigan sleeves while sewing. If not just sew the ribbon after hemming.


lots of love,
