Wearing My Heart on My Sleeves

Don't you just love my "new" Valentine sweater?

I was totally bummed when I noticed a hole in the elbow of my favorite sweater.  Pinterest to the rescue!  I found this awesome tutorial on Honestly... WTF for adding needle felted elbow patches. 

I tried needle felting a few years ago so I already had the supplies (a foam block & needle) so after a quick trip to our fabulous local yarn shop, The Woolpack, for some roving I was ready to go.

It took me about 15 minutes to felt the hearts on both sleeves and literally cost me $1 to save my favorite sweater.  Now I ♥ it even more!  That's pintastic:-)

  1. I LOVE this sweater. Super cute!

  2. LOVE!!! I am SO going to do this -- so many possibilities for baby clothes too! So glad it was as easy as advertised -- not all Pinterest projects are -- have you seen "" :)

  3. This is adorable! I have several sweaters with holes that I have been meaning to fix. Maybe I'll give this a try.

  4. That is so sweet!! What a great idea!
