3 Step DIY: Neon Trim Cardigan


{Tank: Old Navy, Jeans: Paper denim, Sandals: Nine West, Neon Studs: Loren Hope, Bracelet: Loren Hope}

This is a fun way to revive your old cardigans, or add a little flave to your favorite:)
I saw this image on pinterest via Sincerely Jules, and since I couldn't find the cardigan source, I decided to just re-vamped my own. Read on for full instructions!

Materials:
1/2 yard fabric (ribbon can also be used!)
Liquid Stitch
Scissors
Cardi of choice

Instructions:
1) Measure out your fabric of choice in the lengths of your cardigan edges.
2) Cut strips along the edge of your fabric approximately 1/4-1/2 in. wide.
3) Using liquid stitch, slowly attach your strips along the edges of your cardigan and let dry.

I am keeping these DIY's simple for you folks! They are the only ones I have time for;)
I hope you enjoy!

  8. Cute! Love the cardigan "after" a lot. I think the raw edge of the fabric will look fun too.

  22. Couldn't help lending a little sewing opinion :)

    If you cut the fabric on the bias, it won't fray as much (some fabrics fray a lot cut on a straight line), plus it's easier to fit around curves for a smooth line.
    If you don't want to do that, add fray check to the ends so it doesn't fray!
