There's a Hole in My Sweater

Hello Refashion Co-op. I did a little button switch-a-roo recently. Does that count as a refashion? It all started as a way to hide some mending.

This was a plain black cardigan. It was a simple basic sweater, a little boring but useful.

Here was the problem. It got a hole on the sleeve. I had to stitch it up. That was simple too.

I added this little giraffe button to hide the mending where the hole was.

I also removed the plain buttons in the front and replaced them with more of the giraffes. They made the sweater more colorful and fun.

That's it for now, thanks for reading this post.

The giraffe buttons are wonderful

Thanks whatthesew! I agree, and they were tucked away in a drawer. They needed to be used.

Darling buttons, and they really add to the cardigan.
