101 Crafty Gifts. Easily Dunn. So I got this shirt in the 6th grade. And I keep on keeping it because I like the stripes or something…and maybe the colors. But I can’t wear it because a) it’s too short and b) it’s too thick to layer with anything. And in the middle of last week’s closet-purging, in a blinding stroke of genius, I decided to make it a cardigan. But the fastest, kind of laziest way possible. use a ruler and cut a line down the center of the front of the shirt. ok. you’re almost done. hem the edges with your hem tape, using the instructions that came with it. pick a button. then sew it on one of the sides where a normal button should theoretically go. it’s just for show so it looks like a legit cardigan. you’re not going to dilly-dally with making a button hole or anything because that’s just out of the realm of my patience.

I know you probably found this on pinterest or some craft blog somewhere…or something to that effect.
