Little Cardigan Makeover

Firstly, I would just like to say thank you so much for the lovely comments about my granny blanket, honestly thank you, it means a lot.

So, I seem to own quite a number of cardigans and actually wear one most days. This little cardigan I bought a couple of months ago, but I really wasn't feeling the love for it. I like the colour and it goes with a lot of things but truthfully, I find it a little boring...

Yesterday, I decided to start giving it a little makeover.

The buttons were changed from these...

To these...

A little vintage style brooch was made...

And here is the end result! I think it looks much better! A very simple little makeover that took less than a couple of hours, but I'm happy with it. Sometimes it really is the little things which make all the difference...

Happy weekend everyone.

  8. Hi I'm a new follower! Love your blog and your cardi makeover, lovely idea and just a perfect transformation. I looked a few post back and LOVE your button mugs!!! Want one!

  9. You are so right, gosh, what a difference simply adding new buttons makes! You've made me look at some cardigans I've got languishing in the wardrobe in a new light...perhaps I could perk them up with some new buttons? x

  10. What a difference adding colourful buttons and a heart makes, just beautiful. You have me looking out my old cardigans.

  11. I have quite a number of cardigans that are definitely in need of a re-vamp. I've been thinking about changing the buttons and now I've seen yours I think I need to get on and do it. Yours looks great now. Fiona x
