Cover it up with sequins – DIY elbow patches

Looking for a classy way to spruce up an old cardigan or tired shirt? Then, you’re going to just love this quick how-to from a pair and a spare, the ultimate blogging experience for any DIY diva. 

You’ll need:
  • a jersey or long sleeved top of some king
  • sequin fabric
  • scissors
  • a needle and thread
  • craft paper and a pen

Using your hand as a guide, draw an oblong shape on the paper.
Cut the paper out and pin it to the back of the sequins.
Cut the shape out.
Do a second one the same.
Pin the patches in place, and then try on the sweater to make sure they are located in the right place. Then lightly stitch them on, using a longer stitch on the inside of the sweater and a shorter one on the front so that the stitches are less noticeable.
Stitch the other patch on, making sure to stitch in the right place so they look symmetrical.
And there you have it.
