Thursday

DIY Inspiration Challenge // Blanket Top Round Two

Last week I shared round one with you, where I created a top with a thrifted blanket. Here I used the remains of the blanket and created a second wearable D.I.Y.  

This is a really simple project. All I did was cut out the back of the cardigan and replaced it by stitching in the blanket. Elsie & Emma inspired this project and have lots of details on how to make your own that you can find here. I've always thought myself to be a resourceful person, but this project really challenged me to not feel the need to run to the craft store every time I want to make a new project, but instead use something I already have.

I hope these two projects have inspired you to create something new from something old; something you normally might pass by or throw out, but instead give it a new purpose. Have a lovely Thursday, friends.
