No Sew Shirt Re-fashion- Winter Shirt to Spring Cardigan

One Knit Shirt
One Pair of Scissors

Seriously easiest wardrobe re-fashion you could ever do. I took one long sleeved Winter Shirt and turned it into a Spring Cardigan in a matter of about 30 seconds.
I had this shirt in my closet. It wasn't one that I wore much before I got pregnant and couldn't wear it since my belly has gotten so big. I needed a little cardigan to wear tonight, so... I just cut it up. Perfect!

1. Find a long sleeved knit shirt that is in good condition, but that you've found you no longer wear (or in my case, it was getting way too small)
2. Find the center of the front. Make a straight cut all the way up. Be careful not to cut through the back.
3.If you want it to be 3/4 sleeves. Find the spot where you would like the sleeve to stop and snip it off. Use that piece to measure how much to cut from the other sleeve. You'd look silly with sleeves that were different lengths. LOL.
4. Ta Da. Wear it.

So CUTE! I like all the possibilities this project holds. The cardigan would look so cool embellished with some funky buttons or fabric flowers. Or maybe even a snowman!

Yes, Shelly. I was thinking of some embellishment of some kind. Not sure yet what that will be...
