My name is Lori Marie and I like to make pretty things. Elsie asked me to come up with a simple DIY to share for her 12 days of Tricks & Treats. Yay! I thought it would be fun to restyle something you already had in your wardrobe to give it new life for the season. I mean, who doesn't love a little free style, right?
Supplies List: You'll need a sweater, felt scraps, embroidery thread, a glue stick and needle.
SNIP: Cut your felt. Select colors that compliment your garment. Doodle simple shapes that are easy to cut. Cut shapes from felt.
STICK: Glue in place. Decide on arrangement of felt. Secure in place with glue stick.
I like to arrange the entire design and then begin gluing one tiny piece at a time.
STITCH: Time to Sew. Split Floss into two or three strands.
Use tiny whip stitch to secure petals and hearts. Use contrast thread and a decorative stitch for the leaves. Stitch every teeny tiny piece until they are all secured.
That's it.... You're done! Now you have a new fancy favorite! Use your imagination and whatever embellishments you have laying around. The possibilities are endless! ♥ Lori Marie
