DIY: Heart Patch Sweater tutorial

I’m super happy to bring y’all this tutorial. I’ve been wanting a sweater with heart patches on the elbows since last fall. I just adore this trend. Plus, it seems like a terrific way to update an old boring sweater and give it new life.

I finally grabbed a couple sweaters, my sewing box, and some creativity yesterday and just got on it! No more waiting to find one… I’ll make one.

I’m a terrible seamstress. TERRIBLE. So, I tell you… if I can do it… it must be pretty derned simple. You can, too.

Step 3. Try on your sweater. Looking in the mirror or with help from a friend use stick pins to mark off where you elbow is. Carefully take off the sweater.

Step 4. Pin the fabric hearts to the marked areas on the sleeves.

Step 5. Sew on the hearts. Use a threaded needle and simply stitch, starting from the inside of the sleeve and wrapping the edge of the heart with a whip stitch. Do this all the way around.

Stitch to the inside… stitch to the outside just above the last stitch you made. Round and round the edge of the heart. Wrapping the edge.  If I’m not being clear enough here is a handy little diagram from BHG on how to whip stitch.
