Embellished Sweater

Several months ago I purchased this sweater from Her Tern Boutique:

I love the flower embellishments. The petals seem to be made of sweater material and were hand sewn onto the garment.

I had a couple of sweaters I never wear, so I thought I’d give it a try.

I made a little petal template out of tagboard and cut out five petals for each flower. I pinned them in place and then sewed them onto the sweater. Then I used embroidery thread to make the center of each flower.

 I think I might add more tonight, but I wanted to wear my newly refashioned sweater to work.
