I’ve been seeing a lot of cute sweaters with elbow patches lately, so I decided to try to make one of my own. I bought this green shirt at Forever 21 a couple of years ago, because I absolutely loved the colour, but it never really looked right on me, and I was going to get rid of it in my spring closet clean out. Instead, I used it to make some patches for my favourite black cardigan.
I used a piece of card stock to cut out a heart, and then traced it onto the fabric and cut out the shapes.
Then I put the cardigan on, and marked the center of my elbow with a pen, and sewed on the patches.
The finished product.
