Refashion – Cardigan Scrap Fabric Binding

I had this nice basic gray cardigan but the binding was starting to fray and come apart. I also had a bin full of vintage scrap fabric from my great aunt. Inspiration struck and I decided to replace the frayed binding with a scrappy pieced one.

What do you think? I think maybe the pieces I used are too long. And I don't want to look too crafty, crafty homemade. However it is the kind of style I could imagine finding at Anthropologie. Don't believe me? Check out these: Floriography Cardigan, Vermeil Streams Cardigan, Piled Stripes Cardigan, and my favorite the Intarsia Bow Cardigan. Maybe it needs more embellishment??
