Cardigan Junkie

I don't know why but i have an obsessions with cute and different looking cardigans and button up sweaters. They are my staples. I like mine to have a patterned or cool buttons - something quirky. I had this plain ice aqua one that I kinda reinvented (it was long sleeve and boring buttons before).
Here are the directions (got this from last April's Teen Vogue - taken me time yet?):
1. Remove buttons from a long sleeved cardigan and line with grosgrain ribbon.
2. Sew vintage buttons on using needle and thread
3. Cut the sleeves at the elbow and fold them 2x; sew cuff in place
4. Stitch one big button to the outermost point of each sleeve cuff
