DIY POLKA DOT SWEATER

Tuesday, November 22, 2011
We have to find inspiration somewhere!!! I find, I like, and I make it!!! Like I have mentioned before I'm not one to spend big amounts on one single item. The Polka Dot trend is coming around and Marc Jacobs featured an oh so cute polka dot shirt that I just had to have. Jess and I decided  to make our own version, sweater style (because its winter) Here was our inspiration...



So here is what you will need:


1. Scissors
2. Lid to trace your circles (you can do whatever size circles you want)
3. Fusible fabric
4. Sweater/shirt or whatever you want to polka dot!!


Cut out your fabric by folding the fabric and cutting circles. This takes a lot less time than cutting one circle out at a time!!!


Iron the polka dots on however you would like. I cut some of mine and put them on edges. I put more dots on my sweater and Jess did less. It is all up to you!!!



And the final result!!! We put them on right when we were done ironing them. Ahh its love.

 I found a tutorial online for how to make polka dot sweaters and Jess and I decided to simplify. It was a little more complicated and expensive than what we did. I am all about cheaper, faster and easier when it comes to crafts. I think ours turned out just as good. Here is the picture from the website. If you want to make it this other way click on the picture and it will take you to their website. You can also make up your own techniques to make it work for you! The sky is the limit so I hear!



Have a great day!
