Mom Monday: Anchor Applique Sweater

Jun 17, 2014 | Other | 4 comments

Hi All,

Today is a Mom Monday, meaning that I have a project from my mom!

This one was pretty simple- an applique project on an old sweater that had a stain.

You know when you have an old sweater that you like and that has potential, but it’s a bit boring and has a stain right down the front? well here is a wonderful solution to that problem.

Mom started off with this sweater- simple white, thin, cable knit- and of course with her love of all things nautical she was like “this needs an anchor!” – so she printed a clipart anchor off, and cut it out of a thin light denim and iron-on adhesive.

Then simply ironed it on to the front (covering the stain), and then did a little zig-zag around the edge in a matching thread to fully secure it.

It gave a really neat finish, and doesn’t it look so cute!?

My sister modeling it!

So there is a really quick and simple sewing project, especially if you’re looking for something that you can whip up quick and enjoy!

Hope you’re all having a marvelous Monday!

    What a cute idea, up-cycling a sweater. The anchor is perfect. Well done, Mary!
