Bow Button Shirt | Lana Red
Recently I went on a cleaning spree and went through all my craft supplies. Yeah, it took a while. Among all my half finished projects (I’ll finish those soon…) I found a giant bag of assorted buttons that I didn’t realise I had! Some were bought by my friend Chelsea who got me some adorable ones from a button shop here in Adelaide, others were vintage ones from a work colleague who used to own a sewing business. So what do I do with all these gorgeous buttons?! Well this is the perfect DIY! It combines two of my favourite things - buttons and cardigans! Plus it’s cute to boot.

Summer Cover Up | Prudent Baby
This was originally called the ‘Hot Mess Mommy Cardigan’ but you don’t have to be a Mom to have to wear this! In Summer I hate being hot but I hate showing my arms. But cardigans are too warm to wear, and shrugs don’t always go with what I’m wearing. This is perfect as it’s made from rayon or voile, meaning it’s light weight and breezy! And I have some really pretty blue rayon just perfect for this…

Kate Spade Inspired Cardigan | Grosgrain
You already know of my love or Kate Spade. In particular I love her cardigans and therefore I am in love with this Kate Spade inspired cardigan by Grosgrain! You can see the original version here. I think I really need to make this! Especially seeing I realised today that I have basically no nice jumpers to wear in this frigidly freezing cold weather!

Summer Cardigan | Thinking About You
Kmart was having a sale today and tshirts were only $1.50! You couldn’t make them for that! So my sister bought me a couple then I went up and bought some more. So now I have some dodgy old tshirts that I can cut up. I will keep some aside to make the tshirt rug I featured before, but I also have one I love that I don’t want to cut up. And as I’ve said before, I love cardigans, so what better way to re-use it than this?!

Spring Sweater Refashion | Tater Tots & Jello
When I saw this DIY I was like - yes! I feel the same way about scarves!

This refashion also uses a scarf. This is the problem — I buy  scarves because I think they are so adorable but then I never feel like I  know how to wear them. Or I feel too self-conscious to wear them.

I always buy the most beautiful scarves and then they sit lovingly in my wardrobe. Darn. They just never seem to look right. So adding them to a cardigan means I get to wear them and wear a cardigan. Win-win!
