First of all, I want to know where Nikki from Nikki’s Nifty Knacks shops, because she found some K&Company Amy Butler fabric tags and buttons at her favorite dollar store. Say what? That’s amazing. Then she found a sweatshirt for just one buck at her dollar store, too (I have actually seen those at my local Dollar Tree – amazing deal!). She combined the two to make a pretty embellished sweatshirt for less than $2. Perfect way to welcome fall, don’t you think? Thanks to Nikki for posting her great project at the Dollar Store Facebook page. [how to make an embellished sweatshirt]

If you aren’t lucky enough to find these Amy Butler supplies at your local dollar store, check your regular craft store, or buy a tiny bit of designer fabric at your local fabric store and add it to the sweatshirt the same way Nikki did. You can even use a freezer paper stencil to add an inspirational sentiment to your cute fabric.

Project Estimate:

  • Sweatshirt, $1
  • Fabric tags & button, $1
  • Sewing stuff, on hand

Total: $2
