sweater upgrade

I love vintage sweaters and own a few that are really lovely but what makes me so excited about this project is that I took a basic cardigan that wasn't being used out of my closet and made it into something with a little bit of oomph.

This is such a simple project and so inexpensive. If you know how to thread a needle and sew a basic stitch you can tackle it as it's simple sewing on a pre purchased appliqué onto any old sweater in your closet. I got mine from here and they have a really great collection.
