ok; so it was a vintage cardigan, very huge and unflattering. but i got a new <3 delia's catalog in the mail the other day and there were so many cute shrugs in there i had to try one. so i cut up the cardigan, re-sewed the 'piping' so that it curves on the bottom, and put on some cute little applique's. i ran out of thread literally 1/8" short of completing this HAHAHAH. has that ever happened to anyone?? i still have to tidy it up a little bit, the front piping needs to be mended where i cut it by accident, before i decided what i was going to do.

anyway, here are some pics. i didn't use a tutorial or pattern, just kind of trial and error. i was excited to use one of my vintage buttons. i have so many awesome buttons, too bad it takes so long to make the clothes to put them on! Smiley
