Snow Flower Cardigan

I saw this cardigan while perusing the ModCloth website and was inspired to make my own version.





Fall Flowers Cardigan

I started with a plain cardigan and t-shirt.





Traced leave shapes onto the t-shirt and cut them out.





Sewed the leaves down using a straigh stich down the center line.





Satin stitched the centers of the flowers.





That is all there is to it.







Here is the template for the leaves. Linking with Momma Go Round.
