DIY No Sew Cardigan From a Shrunken Sweater!

Have you ever shrunk your sweater in the dryer or perhaps it's just from a long time ago but you don't wanna toss it? Well, you don't have to!

This is a super fun, fast and simple DIY project to keep that sweater in your wardrobe.

What you'll need:

Sweater

Scissors

Hem tape

Buttons

Hot glue

A piece of cardboard or something to put in the cardigan to prevent the hot glue from burning the material

 

Step One:

Get your sweater. Lay it out on a flat surface.

 

Step Two:

Find the middle of your sweater. You can use a ruler or piece of string to be precise! With your scissors, cut down the center. Plug your hot glue gun in so it warms up.

 

Step Three:

Fold the jagged edges in. Use the hem tape to keep them down. This way your cardigan has smooth flaps.

 

Step Four:

Get your buttons ready. Place the cardboard under your flap so that your hot glue doesn't get on the inside of your cardigan. Now, place your buttons on your cardigan. Use a marker of some sort to make sure that you get them where you want them. You don't even have to use many, it's all about personal preference. Hot glue the buttons to the cardigan. 

 

Lots of Buttons or one button!

You're done!
