Who knew that elbow patches would become a huge fashion statement. I guess this means my grandfather was ahead of the trend then... Anywho here is a DIY for elbows patches.
1. Get a sweatshirt, cardigan or any long shelve shirt
This one was on sale for $8.00 at Urban Outfitters
2. Get any fabric you wish to use to make your patches. You can use suede, leather, or any cool pattern at that. I found this fake suede at my local fabric store for $2.99 a yard and bought a little less then half a yard
3. Fold the fabric in half and cut a oval (or egg like) shape.
4. Mark your elbow with patch then pin down. Begin sewing the patch to the shirt (using the machine or hand stitch)
I suggest playing around with the shape of the patch, the colors, the type of sweatshirt or even throwing a matching pocket on the front as well. It's all up to you!!
