My sister and I have been chatting about about adding elbow patches to our sweaters as a DIY project. Becuase we are hipster like that. And by hipster I mean we peruse Pinterest and get inspired by all the other ideas.
I saw a few tutorials for felting elbow pads, which looked fantastic, but they seemed to be a bit more involved than what we were going for.
So we bought some stitch witchery, some fabric, and ironed those patches onto our elbows.
We used chalk to mark the center point of the elbow section.
Oh and we made Grits a scarf as well.
I thought a cat patch would be freakin' adorable on my elbows. It's a subtle way to "wear" a cat outfit (other than constantly being covered in cat hair), without decking myself out in all things cat.
Although let me take this opportunity to thank all of you who have tweeted and emailed my sister and I about the cute cat sweater and dress at Loft. You know us well, and we are very tempted to buy it.
If this is the first post you are ever reading from me. . .well I'm sure you will think I'm a little cat crazy. It's true. And if this is your second or fiftieth post you already know that about me.
Anyway, back to the patch.
By the way, is the title of this post making sense to you yet?? #kneeslapper
I cut out two cats, cut out the stitch witchery, and began ironing.
My sister made cute little yellow hearts. . .
I almost went into cat-iac arrest when I saw how cute it turned out.
I am not kitten you this is my new favorite sweater.
