30 Days For 30 Dollars - Day 23 - "Doily" Pocket Cardigan


Wondering what 30 Days for 30 Dollars is?? Read all about it here.

"Doily" Pocket Cardigan:



For today's project, I started out with these 2 "doilies, thrifted, 25 cents a piece:

technically I don't think they're doilies because they're not crocheted (I don't know what they were supposed to be used for) but you could easily achieve a similar look with actual doilies


and a cardigan from my closet:



Stitch the doilies to the cardigan in pocket position and voila - cute embellished cardigan pockets:


Total cost - 50 cents
