Cardigan Makeover

I love cardigans. I love them almost as much as I love sequins, flamingos, and skulls. I have a ton of them. I have been eying a couple of tattoo cardigans on a website I visit frequently. I just can't bring myself to pay $80 for a sweater I will only get to wear a few time a year. I am however willing to pay $13 on a clearance cardigan at Target, even if the color matches very little in my closet.

Last week I received my Crafty Chica product tester package. Inside was a package of Crafty Chica Juicy Inks fabric markers and a set of iron on transfers. The transfers included a muertos bride and groom and a sacred heart. When I saw the heart I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. I had the makings of a cardigan similar to the one I wanted.

I ran over to Target and found a light blue cardigan on the clearance rack for $13, awesome, and it was the last one my size, even more awesome! I came home and got to work. 30 minutes later I had my AWESOME new tattoo style cardigan finished and ready to wear. I can only pray that there is a breeze tomorrow so I can wear it proudly out of the house.

Making my cardigan was super easy. All I needed was:
1 plain cardigan
1 Crafty Chica iron on transfer
an iron
1 set of Crafty Chica Juicy Inks (fabric markers)

 Step1: Iron on transfer image according to package directions. 

Step2: Color in image using fabric markers.

Step 3: Wear your awesome new cardigan proudly.

Enjoy :)
