Elbow patches are one of my favorite trends this season! Last month, I shared how to hand print hearts on your jeans and we recieved many requests for a patch tutorial! I asked Amanda to show you how she would do it in this next feature…. Enjoy!
Supplies needed: cardigan, fabric (this is a great way to use scraps!), fabric marker/crayon, 1 sheet of card stock, scissors, pins, embroidery thread and embroidery needle.
1. Using the fabric marker, mark an X on each sleeve of your cardigan right at the point of your elbow.
2. Cut a heart out of card stock to use as a stencil, making sure it fits perfectly on the sleeves of your cardigan. Resize if necessary.
3. Cut two hearts from fabric, using stencil. 4. Pin a heart to each sleeve of your cardigan, making sure the center of the heart is placed over the X you made earlier. 5. Stitch all the way around the heart with embroidery thread. You could also use a sewing machine! I really wanted a "handmade" look, so I hand stitched mine.
6. Repeat on the other sleeve, and your restyled cardigan is finished and ready for fall! 🙂
Thanks so much, Amanda! I love how your cardigan turned out. The floral details are just perfect!
Happy Monday, everyone…. xo. Elsie

I am fairly new to your blog, and i already love it!! But i need something sweet for my mom for her birthday!! Something that would be easy to make but thoughtful. Thanks!!!
I am the exact same way when it comes to clothes. I have to match and all the crools have to “go together” in a neat and organized way. I’m trying to break myself of this. Sometimes I’ll be a little daring and try to thrown on some shoes that don’t match exactly perfect. I usually second guess myself until I take them off. Also, I love turquoise. It’s one of my new favorite crools. And turquoise and red are a killer combo!
You look so cute! I love the top, and the skirt looks great like that :)I have my share of nightmare puircte days too — my boyfriend takes mine, but I absolutely hate it if anyone is around watching. Even if someone walks by, I stop posing and go all awkward ;)M xo

Kelly, you’re so adorable and SO tltaneed. My word. Love all your sewing projects. And i had to leave a comment on Leah’s blog after I saw your comment about my sis’s wedding dress. My mom is SO amazing and the things she sews are just out of this world. I wish I had learned a thing or two from her, but I refused to pay attention growing up and swore I’d NEVER sew things for my kids. Can you say “regret”?Enjoy your sunny Christmas and it is FREEEEEEZING here. Came out of nowhere and it’s NOT pleasant. Keep the entertainment coming@

I have to ask–how on earth did you keep your hair looking so wnuferdol throughout the pregnancy? If you tell me that’s your natural haircolor, I’ll probably call you a liar, or at least be very jealous. I’m at week 14 of my first pregnancy and stumbled on your blog when looking for how to create an upholstered headboard. And I’m officially an avid follower of All Things G&D! Congratulations on your little one! It’s very exciting to read about your pregnancy as I progress through my own (and to see your beautiful end result…named after Kate Spade? 😉 Be honest.) -Jaime
Aaah. Life sure can be sucksville sommitees. I think there is something in the air..globally. Sucky crapola seems to be making it’s way around.I really hope that you manage to find a few moment sin each day that can make you feel truly awesome.Your quilt is lovely! It must be nice to wake up to in the mornings. A good start each day!
I totally sluebtmd upon your blog while searching for local inspiration for my own and its wonderful! Then, I realized that I met you when I picked up my little ceramic love from Courtney last week! Hope things are looking up for you, Spring sometimes ushers in new winds!
One of my really good frdines lives by those clogs I think she may even have a few pair. They are super comfy and I like how you made this look cute and girly with the touch of red. I totally had a “ME TOO!” moment when you mentioned Diner’s, Drive-Ins, and Dives. I love that show and I make a list of places I need to go to everytime I watch lolxoxoFAKE EMPIREwww.shopfake.com
What do you use to keep the edges of the heart from fraying?
I did this last weekend! So fun and so easy! Thank you!
more often: I mean, I see a lot of “oh, no, now girls are going to have effed up ideas about love!” Well, um. The guys I liked when I was Bella’s age? Not exactly selrting examples of young manhood. I grew out of it. Yes. People are stupid. People will always be stupid. A book does not influence people to make the wrong decisions.And: But the more important point is that hating on someone for being a fan and anointing yourself as the person who gets to decide who and who does not get to enter the clubhouse is the real dick move. I had to stop reading the Internets during SDCC because I wanted to throttle every asshole who complained about the TWILIGHT fans ruining Comic Con. As Jeff might say, STFU nerds. Jesus. If anyone should be supporting TWILIGHT fans, it’s members of other fandoms.
This tutorial just saved my favorite jumper’s life! Thanks!
Ps. Love your blog, thanks for all the lovley ideas!
