Crewneck Sweater Turned Cardigan

A few weeks back I was target shopping the sale rack when I came across a killer steal! I found this tribal crewneck sweater on sale for $5.00!  Now, I didn’t really need this sweater, but I could not pass up such a great deal!

My new sweater sat in the bag for a couple of weeks until I decided to dig it out. When I looked at it, I thought I would like it better if it were a cardigan. So, I decided a little transformation was in the cards. I cut my sweater down the middle and added some seam binding for an instant change-up!

{Step 2}: Lay your seam binding along side the cut edge of your sweater. Cut it so it is an inch longer on each side. Repeat on the other side.

    Love this project! I have an oversized sweater that I’m a little tired of but can’t quite get rid of. I’m turning it into a cardigan now!
