Embroider Your Cardigan Sleeves

Embroider Your Cardigan Sleeves!

So this isn't really a DIY, but I wanted to share my embroidered cardigan sleeves today! This cardi was a hand-me-down from an old roommate (like most of my clothes now) and I decided to spruce it up with a little embroidery in complementary colors!

I tried my cardigan on and marked where my elbow sat in the sleeve by bending my arm and threading a needle or pin through the fabric. This would be the center of whatever I embroidered. I then stitched a few lazy daisies and some French knots in bright yellow and a few shades of blue!

I love this cardigan. Not only does it have a great drape and the sleeves are long enough (a HUGE plus for a tall girl like me), but I also got it for free! Got anything you think needs dolling up? Give this easy embroidery idea a try! Happy Saturday, friends.
