Embellished 5 - Fleece Pullover Refashion

So the Embellished Five is back at it again this month. The idea is that five bloggers will start with the same item. We will each embellish it however we like and post about it on the same day. For the first round, Stefi sent each of us a pink t-shirt. You know the, basic one you can pick up at JoAnne Fabric or Michael's Craft Store. Here's my T-shirt post. This month we were each sent a cream colored fleece pull over from Old Navy.

I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do with this one and have been staring at it and moving it around my house. I finally decided to transform it into something I actually need this time a year, a vest. The weather is just starting to turn spring like here in Missouri but I like to have something to throw on in the mornings! This is what I came up with.



Nothing to major but it will work for me and it was my first time installing a zipper in a jacket!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the "Embellished Five" to see what they came up with! And look for more. We have three more rounds to go!

  2. very nice choice, I like the contract between black and white! Bravo!

  3. great job, smart move making it a vest.

  4. Love the black/white combo here! This turned out terrific!
