DIY Idea: Elbow Patch Sweater

by Marielisa Gomez - 8:30:00 AM


This is the first DIY project of the year, and I'm guessing it'll be one of the favorites! I love wearing simple pieces that have an element of surprise, whether it's a touch of spark or a piece of lace. For this DIY, I found an amazingly simple way to add a detail of sequin to a classic sweater. I've been eyeing elbow patches in many different colors, patterns, shapes and textures... and when I saw this elbow patch sweater, I knew I had to try this idea. So, without further ado, here's today's project tutorial...

What you'll need:
- A sweater
- Sequin fabric
- A needle and thread
- Scissors
How to:
- Draw two oblong shapes on the sequin fabric and cut them out.
- Make sure the size of the shapes fits well on the sweater.
- Pin both pieces of fabric into the sweater to make sure they are properly located.
- Stitch each piece of fabric on each arm of the sweater symmetrically.


That's it! Now you have a new, super elegant piece in less than 15 minutes!
You can try using a different fabric other than sequin, just be creative and look for what you like best. :)

Happy Friday!
