The Flower Power Cardigan


As soon as I saw this tutorial on Craftstylish I knew I had to try it. A sweater/cardigan . . . with flowers . . . yes! The tutorial is great, especially for someone with very limited embroidery skills (like me) - she shows you exactly how to do the daisy stitch. The only thing I did differently was to use embroidery thread instead of yarn and change up the colors a bit.












And here was what my cardigan looked like before:
