How to Turn a Jumper into a Cardigan DIY

7/08/2013 04:48:00 pm

Wie hier schon versprochen zeige ich euch heut, wie man ganz einfach einen Pullover in einen Cardigan verwandeln kann. Ihr braucht: einen Pullover, schönes Band (etwa 2 m), Nadel und Faden, Druckknöpfe und Stecknadeln.

As promised here, I'll show you today how to easily turn a jumper into a cardigan. You'll need: a jumper, ribbon (about 2 m), thread and needle, snap fasterens and pins.



1. Den Pullover gerade in der Mitte durchschneiden.

1. Cut the jumper in the middle.



2. Jetzt die Kanten mit dem Band einmal umfassen, feststecken. Ich habe das auch beim gesamten Ausschnitt gemacht, um ein harmonisches Bild zu erhalten. Nähen.

2. Now wrap the ribbon around the edges you've just created and pin in place. I did this all around the whole neckline to create an even impression. Sew.




3. Jetzt ein Paar Druckknöpfe annähen. Ihr könnt natürlich auch normale Knöpfe oder Haken benutzen, ganz wie ihr es bevorzugt.

3. Now sew on a pair of snap fasteners. Of course, you can also use normal buttons or hooks, just what you prefer.



4. Aus dem restlichen Band eine Schleife legen und annähen, da wo der Druckknopf sitzt. Fertig!

4. Now fold a bow from the remaining ribbon and stitch on where the snap fastener is. Done!
