November is Embellish Your Knits Month on Grosgrain!!

October 20, 2010


Photo credits left to right: Complete Embellishing, Lorajean's Magazine.

This November Grosgrain will be having EMBELLISH MONTH! Basically I'll be taking an old sweater EVERDAY and embellishing it in a fantastic way! If I can I will also try to include tutorials for most cardigans!

And no, they won't be all ruffles. (Although I do love my ruffles:) 

DON'T spend $98 on an Anthropologie cardigan when all you need is an hour of your time and a thrift store sweater.

Please share this button on your sidebar. I'd love to get as many people involved as possible:)

More updates soon.

i am so excited...love this idea, will you go ahead and start to let us know what to buy ahead of time...fantastic idea!!! can't wait.

Ana said... Best Blogger Tips

It's funny that you are doing this. I was on Anthropologie's website yesterday and I saw these really cute kids sweaters with embellishment on them, but of course too expensive for me. That inspired me to make something like it for my daughter. So I specifically went to the thrift store today to look for some soft cardigans to embellish. Now I hope that it comes out cute. This should be fun though!

Jill said... Best Blogger Tips

I LOVE this idea! Can't wait to get started. Also, I just started blogging about a week ago and I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to formatting my blog. How do I add the link to my sidebar?

I should be sleeping said... Best Blogger Tips

Yaya! Am looking forward to seeing the creations and being inspired by the creativity that there is out in Internet-land ... again! :)

Jenn A said... Best Blogger Tips

OH NO! I've noticed that the gorgeous white "ethereal" is missing from your giveaways. If it's gone and I don't know anything about it, I didn't win :(

MushyWear said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm going to love following this journey. New skills in embellishing will be such fun to learn. Can't wait to see all your ideas. I love to wear cardigans, especially when they have some clever design details.

BronP said... Best Blogger Tips

What a fantastic idea!! I can't wait!

Detailing Life said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, this project is exactly what I need right now! I love going thrifting for second hand clothes, and I'm really looking forward getting some superb ideas from all of you people on how to make them even better! Can't wait!

CreativeMama said... Best Blogger Tips

Nice idea. Though i don't have much of knit in my wardrobe!

Gaylene said... Best Blogger Tips

Brilliant - I can't wait!! Anthropologie is now in the UK, and I have a few pieces, but it's twice the price over here. Loved the navy cardigan you did a few months ago.

mrsbutters said... Best Blogger Tips

Brilliant Idea! I'm hoping to be able to tag along, might just have to cut down the long list of christmas crafting ideas I have and provide myself with a few 'new' things!

Lisa said... Best Blogger Tips

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Claudia said... Best Blogger Tips

Bring it on! I am so excited for this. I would love if your next book would be about your thrift-store miracles and something along the line of what we might see in Nov. No doubt, it will only be FAB!!!

Darci said... Best Blogger Tips

Yay! This will be fun!

Kelley said... Best Blogger Tips

I have been working on this too! I have been embellishing for the last week, so glad to jump on your wagon and play along!

Andromache said... Best Blogger Tips

Yay I'm excited!! My boyfriend makes fun of all my cardigan's....sais I look like a school teacher (but I'm a scientist..)

Heather said... Best Blogger Tips

Sounds great! I'll be there!

Heidi said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks, this is just what I've been looking for! Also, I was hoping you could maybe put a "Frock by Friday" category in your tutorials page. I'd so love to see them all grouped together for easy access!

Lorajean said... Best Blogger Tips

Ooh I am so excited! This is gonna' be fun! P.S. Thanks for linking back to my blog! :)

Susan Woods said... Best Blogger Tips

I can't believe I found this today. The past two nights I have been working on transforming my hubby's old too bug even for him sweaters into slimmer more feminine items I can wear with pride. You know what they say about great minds thinking alike. Looking forward to your ideas.
