DIY: Embellished Pearl Sweater

Most of you that read my blog,  know that I love all things embellished. Well, for now I have gone away from spikes and studs, and currently love pearls.  For a while, I wanted to put pearls on a sweater, but I needed the right sweater.  You might have one right in your closet you can use. I found mine for $10.00 at Plato's closet. This is a great embellished sweater to add to any wardrobe and I love how it turned out.

Materials needed for this are a sweater, scissors, threading needle, white thread, 2 different sizes of pearls. I used some from a old necklace I had, but they can be found at any local craft store.

Step 1: Decide upon a design before sewing on pearls. Thread your needle and pull through sweater with a large needle.

Step 2: After each pearl, you will tie a knot. Then, move onto the next pearl. Do not cut string until the final pearl. You will need to do one continuous string. I tried knotting them separately and they kept falling off. (annoying)

Step 3: Continue process until you have the desired design.

 Step 4: I put on eight large pearls and ten smaller pearls on each sleeve. Make sure to duplicate the same pattern on the other sleeve.
