The heart sweater trend has been popping up all over the place this season (thanks to this gorgeous number from J Crew) so today I wanted to share some fabulous DIYs I’ve spied on a few of my favourite blogs. These crafty ladies have taken this sweet trend to a crafty place and they’re bringing us along for the ride with some very well thought out and completely doable tutorials. With just a few basic sewing/felting skills, you’ll be well on your way to a cute new date night top! Enjoy!
The red and black beauty above was created by Amy Day to Day and featured on Design, Dining + Diapers. I love how she’s paired her new sweater with black skinny jeans and boots for a sleek and simple look.
Over at A Beautiful Mess, lovely ladies Elsie and Kinsey shared their own version, featuring a bright red heart on a white, lacy backdrop. I love the idea of making this sweater with a vintage, thrifted piece for added style and character. Pair it with a flirty skirt or wear it over a light dress for a layered look.
Kinsey also shared this neat cardigan upstyle on her blog, Sincerely Kinsey. Just grab a tired old cardy and some gauzy fabric for a romantic new piece. I am daydreaming about all the different fabrics I could play around with for this DIY… the possibilities truly are endless.
Lastly, I’m completely smitten with this elbow patch tutorial spotted on Honestly WTF. Can you imagine sprucing up a simple wool sweater with some felted hearts? A cookie cutter is the secret ingredient to this fun DIY!
Wishing you a happy, crafty Valentine’s Day!
