Simple Bow Back Sweater

I'm sure all of us ladies have a bunch of plain sweaters laying around for the fall and winter. I wanted to spruce up one of my simple sweaters I've had for years to give it a new look. A surprise bow back! I adore bows, as you can tell I've had several different bow tutorials (here, here, and here) , but I think this bow tutorial is the easiest. Very little sewing and I only used scrap fabric pieces!

I used this adorable black and white polka scrap fabric from a polka dot top I altered awhile back.

It's really hard to take a back photo by yourself, so excuse my awkward photos. Hahaha. :)

The sweater was simple just like the front.

Then I sewed two small polka dot bows to the back. The top bow is bigger than the bottom bow just for a tiered effect.

Here's the YouTube tutorial!

Simple looks are always the best in my opinion, and with a little bow surprise in the back makes the look of the sweater renewed.

This project was so simple, only took me about an hour at most to complete since there is no sewing machine required! Just needle and thread and you are good to go. Simple, quick, and a wonderful way to renew an old sweater or top. :)
