After teasing you for about two weeks (my bad!), it is finally here--a surprisingly simple DIY to add your own elbow patches to liven up your shirt and make it more heartwarming! (bad pun intended!) c;

So let's get started, shall we?


This obviously took me several tries.. 






If you are a beginner and don't know what this type of stitch is, I'm bad at explaining things so here is a link that can! http://www.positivelysplendid.com/2013/02/sew-a-pillow-closed-by-hand-blind-ladder-stitch.html



I knew this dictionary was going to come in handy eventually!

Aaaand you're finished! That wasn't so bad, was it!? I'm sure you didn't even sew your finger, like I did!:

Right when this happened to me my first thought was "I need to blog this!!" teehee

Let me know if you have any questions or if any of the instructions were unclear! What do you think of this DIY? Would you try it? c; I'd love to see how it turns out for you! Send me/tag me in photos of your finished product! 
...I think I might try to make bird-shaped elbow patches next...!

Hope you enjoyed this LOVEly (sorry for the bad puns) DIY, and again, let me know if you are struggling through any part of the instructions and I'd be glad to help out! Can't wait to see them!! xx
