Heart Sweater

I found this comfy plain blue sweater at Goodwill for 3 dollars and I wanted to sew something on it. I looked through my craft box and found this cream and flower material from a dress I had ripped up (which was also bought at Goodwill last year).

I cut a heart out of the fabric and then painted clear nail polish on the ends of the fabric so that it wouldn't fray. If you use this technique, make sure you put it on the edges very sparingly or it will dry visible.

Then I hand sewed on the heart for a more home-made look.

And this is the final product!
