I thrifted this basic single button cardigan sweater. the sweater is a sort of heather oatmeal grey color so it has flecks on taupe and black. To give it some style and bring if from drab to fab I machine embroidered bird feathers and a birds nest on it. The feathers are around the bust of one side and the nest is toward the hem on the opposite side. The threads for the machine embroidery are in colors of chocolate brown, taupe, blue, and pale green on the leaves. The feathers I used by mistake a wash away stabilizer but luckily the density of the stitching won out. For the birds nest I used a cut away stabilizer that can be seen on the inside of the garment.
