Spring Sweater Redo — Part 2 {and 3 & 4}

I had so much fun making over my white sweater a few weeks ago, 
that I decided to do another – more colorful one. And while I was at it, I made one for two of my girls. We had fun picking out the material for the buttons and the big ric rac. I let them pick out the color of sweater (Walmart) too. Mine is from Target.
{I was having a bad hair day}
My 10 year old hasn’t taken hers off since we finished it :)
And when we were done, my teenage daughter even commented that she wanted one!
If you want to make one, HERE is the tutorial. This is a quick and easy project — approximately 20 minutes per sweater. And don’t worry — if you can’t sew, you can use Liquid Stitch on the ric rac — works like a charm!
This is the week of The Mother’s Day Extravaganza —
it starts on Thursday!
And, don’t forget to get your projects ready to link up on Friday for the DIY Club!

I’m linking up to these fun parties!
Have a Happy Week!
