One Cardigan pattern from an old sweater and t-shirt

One Cardigan pattern from an old sweater and t-shirt by Cucicucicoo

Something I love about sewing for kids is that you can fit the necessary pieces on upcycled adult clothing so easily! So when I sewed up the One Cardigan pattern by Serger Pepper, I managed to cut the hood and sleeves, as well as an extra little bodice detail, from an old sweater of mine (which never fit me very well) and the entire lining, tie and scraps to cover the buttons from an XXL t-shirt that was handed down to me. (The bodice came from a scrap of organic cotton velour.)

So from these unwanted clothing items, I was able to create...

...this absolutely adorable cardigan for my little gal!

So cute and lots of fun to wear! I don't have a tutorial for this project because, like I said, I used the One Cardigan pattern (which you can find in One Thimble, issue 6). But next time I post here on Refashion Co-op I'll have an actual tutorial!

Can't decide on what to find more adorable - I simply take both: hoodie AND 'contents' ;-) !
