Cardigan vest from a T-shirt

wahoo to actually accomplishing things I pinned…..

I bought a new belt so I needed something to wear with it – I ended up with this:

Basically you just hack the arms off a big tshirt, then cut it straight up the front – – writing this blog post probably took 10 times longer than the actual project – it was super quick!

I used some of the scraps from the arms to make a rolled fabric flower broach thing.

So I’m not sold on the bright burnt yellow, but I already had a navy cardigan thing (although long-sleeved) and I didn’t know if you could wear black or gray with a brown belt, so I went bold with the yellow.
