Heart elbow patches

How sweet are these heart elbow patches? The steps to make them don't actually look that hard! I'm the least crafty person ever, but I'd love to try it. They would make the most basic sweater instantly adorable.

I really want to have a go at needle felting now! It looks so easy and good fun.

Wearing these would make me happy.

As somewhere who is wearing a blazer with elbow patches right now, I'm in love with this idea. And how apropos for Vday!

Sarah Bosserman said...

What a lovely twist on an old professor-ish idea! I love men's wear inspired clothing, and I think this would be an awesome contrast in my wardrobe! Thanks!

Laure said...

Needle felting is really fun! I highly recommend it! It's nice to see a modern take on it too, so much needle felted apparel is rather old lady-ish.

"Like". :)

Miss K said...

I did this last weekend from that tutorial. It was really easy and the sweater looks adorable. My advice is to not fill the cookie cutter too full, or the patch is easy to peel off. The good news is that there are no holes in the sweater, so you can just peel it off and try again!

I just bought something with elbow patches on it for the first time (a cardigan) and I have to say they're pretty fun! It's just this little extra special touch to an outfit.

Lyndsy said...

the cutest!

Aneta Hayne said...

That is brilliant ! Now i have to think which sweaters 'need' patches or a make-over :) .I'm really thinking of adding this to all the kids jackets for a V-day surprise :)Wouldn't be cool if they put on their jackets at the same time and notice a little hearts!!?? Priceless photos shoot ....and I have 4 potential kiddos for this lovely surprise ...

Penelope's Wardrobe said...

I love hearts in general! My next DIY for sure!

Robyn said...

these are so cute-might have to try and get creative!

Bethany said...

Such a neat idea!

Emma said...

Hey I've made these: http://tomandemma.wordpress.com/2011/11/15/my-hipster-elbows/

My advice would be to use a leather fabric or something that won't pill in the wash. And also get someone else to mark your elbow spot because I did a bad job of that!

Sharon said...

I'd love these! Glasses are the bomb!
