DIY Heart Cutout Cardigan

DIY Heart Cutout Cardigan

You can't really tell it by my current wardrobe full of glitter and skirts, but growing up, I was not one of those girls with a collection of frilly dresses. In my elementary school years, my wardrobe staple was a pair of red cowgirl boots. In my middle school years, I was partial to my "Billy Keller Basketball Camp" basketball shorts and this furry-feeling orange tank top. (Yeah.) But through all my wardrobe transitions over the years, I've always had a thing for hearts. We've always gotten along. ;)

DIY Heart Cutout Cardigan

A few weeks back, I saw this heart cutout cardigan over on Sincerely Kinsey and being the heart-print lover that I am, I had to try it. (Side note, Kinsey is a contributor to one of my favorite blogs A Beautiful Mess and her blog is awesome.)

PS: You can see my heart cutout dress here. :)

What You Need:

-Cardigan
-Lace (I used lace from an old shirt I don't wear anymore.)
-Sewing Machine
-Pins
-Scissors
-Marker or chalk

DIY Heart Cutout Cardigan

Step 1: First you need to lay out the lace on the inside of the cardigan.
Step 2: Next you need to pin down the lace to the cardigan and trace the outline of your heart.
Step 3: Stitch around the outline and make sure the lace does not shift. Take out the pins when you're done.
Step 4: Carefully cut the heart from the cardigan, leaving the lace layer below. That's it!
