DIY | Neon Fair-Isle

Worried about Winter stir-craziness and bad-weather boredom? Try this super-cozy sweater DIY and snuggle up in style!

  • Step 1: Gather supplies.  Neon fabric markers (mine are from Hobby Lobby) and a fair-isle sweater (or something with a similar geometric pattern).  This vintage one is from the thrift store a few years ago, but there are some other options here, here and here.
  • Step 2: Decide which shapes will get filled in with which colors.
  • Step 3: Find adorable puppy assistant.  Put on holiday movie (I recommend Elf or Home Alone) and carefully color in the shapes.
  • Step 4: Wear around your neighborhood and make the fellow dogpark patrons very jealous.

This would make a great little project to do over this coming Christmas weekend while you relax with family and friends, and would even be a great group project (just in case you happen to have a couple of crafty cousins hanging around).

What do you think - Would you try this jazzed up version of a tried and true classic?  Kind of similar to this little candy-colored treat from Juicy Couture, no?  Let me know if you try it for yourself!
