Vintage Embroidered Linens Spruce Up Tired Cardigan

Craft & Design

Amy over at Early Bird Special spruced up a worn cardigan of hers in a most brilliant and charming way. Using some vintage embroidered napkins she’d scored as extras in a giveaway on Sarah’s blog, she cut out and appliqued the embroidered bits to her cardigan using simple fusible webbing and whip stitches for strength. Gives it that extra little punch (ok, delicate punch) don’tcha think? Ever since I saw a similar project in the book, Complete Embellishing, I’ve been wanting to try this, and seeing Amy’s creation makes me want to try it even more.
