Lace Heart Cardigan | DIY

Tuesday

I've been itching to share this DIY for two weeks now. Hope you enjoy!


  Supplies: Cardigan, (mine was thrifted), lace.
Pantry Supplies: Scissors, paper, sewing pins, sewing machine or needle and thread.
1. Take your cardigan and lay it out on the table with the back facing down. Place the lace down on the inside, making sure it is smooth with no wrinkles and pin it in place. 2. Turn your cardigan over so that the lace is now facing down. Take a piece of paper and cut out the size of heart you want and place it on your cardigan. 3. Take sewing pins and pin all the way around the heart. Be sure the pin goes through the lace as well. 4. Sew right on the inside of the pins to make your heart. Don't have a sewing machine? Don't be discouraged! Take the few extra minutes it takes to hand stitch it. :) 5. CAREFULLY cut out the heart on the inside of the stitching. Don't cut the lace underneath! 6. You're finished! Remove all the pins and enjoy your newly renovated cardigan. 
Hope your Tuesday is lovely. xx

  21. Hi sweet Kinsey! I just found your blog from Elsie's. I read your "About" section and must say, I LOVE that I just randomly found out you and your hubby are believers in Christ! We are SISTERS! How rad is that. Anyway, that really encouraged me. Happy Thursday!

  36. I just finished this, it was so easy and the tutorial you gave was perfect! The only thing I changed was I made the paper heart and then traced around it directly onto my fabric with a fabric pencil and then hand sewed directly onto the line. Thanks Again!
