we have all seen this beloved sweater roaming the internet, right? it's fun. and classic. and downright beautiful in my book. oh and also out of stock. just our luck.
then i got to thinking - with the utmost respect for jenna and her crew [wait. is that why it is called j.crew? ding. lightbulb moment.] - this could be pretty easy to make. i promptly caught a quick tutorial on the net and went searching for the perfect beige sweater. here's what happened.
the thrifting gods were watching over me and - no joke - i found this on my first stop:um, perfect? whoa.
so i gathered some supplies and got to work. basically, i just traced a big heart onto black fabric, cut it out and hand sewed it on.
it's no j. crew masterpiece, but it works. sure there's some fabric pulling in a few areas and it's definitely not woven right into the sweater, but i can deal. for a saturday of errands, it'll do just fine.
