I am not entirely sure whether this is a cardigan or not because google failed to inform me. So I have decided to call it a cardigan anyway.
When I started this project with a long sleeved shirt I was hoping for something more cardigan-like. But half way through it hit me that this was not going to turn out like I had planned. Lesson learned: large shirts do not make for very good fitting cardigans. Regardless I am still very pleased with the result!
Stuff you need:
Large t-shirt (I only used a long sleeved shirt because I liked the color of it)
Needle and thread (sewing machine is preferable)
Embroidery floss (optional)
1. Remove the neckline and shorten the length of the tee to your preferred length. Fold inwards and pin.
2. Sew both the bottom of the tee and the neckline in place.
3. Cut straight down the middle of the tee. Fold inwards, pin and sew in place.
4. If you are using a long sleeved tee shorten the sleeves and make a seam.
I embroidered the neckline only because I was in the mood to embroider something, but you could also add buttons or a ribbon.
