tiny bow sweater DIY

When I saw Tieka of Selective Potential wear this sweater I knew I had to have one of my own. Tieka is a fashion blogger I have been following for quite some time and I love her style. I decided though that instead of going and buying this sweater she wore, I could easily make it instead for pretty cheap!

You will need: An old sweater, black ribbon, and a needle and thread.

you'll need

Cut out as many small  4 inch strips of black ribbon as you want. I chose to do 15 which ended up being the perfect amount, not too overwhelmingly cutesy.

Then one strip at a time, take the ribbon and create a loop. Pinch the top of the loop to the bottom and sew together to make little bows.

Once you have your tiny and adorable little bow pick a spot randomly on the sweater, you can cover your eyes and pick if you wish, and sew on the bow. Repeat this until all bows are sewn onto your sweater. I tried to get them spaced out evenly.

Once all of your bows are sewn on you can wear your sweater and enjoy! I love wearing mine and it will be featured in an outfit post soon! -l.
