Unfortunately, due to my busy work schedule, I've been restricted to projects that are portable and can be done at my desk. So while this isn't really a refashion, I am hoping to squeak it in because it did take an item I wasn't a huge fan of and made it something I might wear more often.
This cardigan started life as a plain red cardigan. Actually, by a huge coincidence, I have a grey one exactly like it. I bought it for the bold pop of color, but the big redness of it turned out to be a bit too color-blockish for me. So it languished in my closet as I wore other brightly colored items that weren't, well, so RED.
You may have noticed my introduction to embroidery. This gave me the idea to embroider something on the cardigan as a way to pass the time at work. A coworker suggested doing the design all in white so it would pop against the bright red. After some looking around for an appropriate design, I found a flower design at knitting-and.com here except I turned it upside down on my cardigan. I also copied the big flower over again for the smaller side design. The heavier knit meant I went through embroidery floss much faster than on the thin linen fabric I was using for the kitchen proverbs.
The whole front, I apologize for the poor contrast with the background. For some reason I put it on my dining room table to take this picture.
