I am going to England in a little less than a week and was trying to figure out what to pack. Because Pinterest is my best, and worst, friend- I started there. I wanted to bring just a handful of clothes, stay comfortable, warm, and fashionable, and of course they had to not wrinkle easily. I found this picture which uses neutrals and one accent color, which I thought was brilliant.
And I saw this picture and knew my wardrobe was going to be set around green.
I gathered my neutrals, but really felt like I needed another sweater, something green. Immediately I remembered Sally’s cardigan from Practical Magic. I have wanted that cardigan for FOREVER, but cannot find it anywhere.
I got a white cardigan from Target and a green stamp pad from Joanns- and resolved to make the cardigan a witchy masterpiece.
The first problem to tackle was the stamp. I couldn’t find one anywhere that looked even similar to the design on Sally’s cardigan. So I made my own using a block of wood, a soldering tool, and craft foam. I drew the design on the craft foam and burned away the negative space that I wanted to be untouched by the ink.
On paper the design looked amazing…but slightly fuzzy cardigans are not so easy to stamp. The designs mostly turned out fuzzy, but I got the general look I think.
Here is the original:
I set the ink by ironing it, but the real test will be the first wash. Fingers crossed…
