The Honestly WTF DIY Elbow Patch will update formerly outdated and bland sweaters with a whimsical heart-shaped decal. The tutorial does require the creator to have some understanding of needle felting, which can be picked up with some practice and YouTube tutorials.
Needle felting involves the repeated weaving of wool rooving through another material -- a sweater in this particular case. Before tackling this design, creators will need to select a sweater they wish to embellish with elbow patches. As well, they will need needles, a heart-shaped cookie cutter and a foam platform. While this DIY is more demanding than most, its final result is one you can truly be proud of.
Individuals can choose whether or not they want the Honesty WTF DIY Elbow Patch on just one elbow or both. While you may not be wearing your heart on your sleeve, it’s pretty close in proximity and that bravery should count for something.
