Hello! It’s Kara from While Camden Sleeps. I just gave birth to my second son and was looking to make something fun to wear for New Years that would be both quick to make, and comfortable. I got both with this project! I refashioned an old sweater into a cute new piece with the simple addition of some sequin elbow patches.
FYI: The sequin fabric I used came from some leggings I decided were a little over the top for me. Luckily, the only cost me $3! That’s cheaper than I could get the fabric for in the store. Score!
This took me under an hour while both the boys were sleeping. Here’s what I did:
2. Cut out the pattern. I folded mine in quarters before cutting so I could make it symmetrical.
3. Use the pattern to cut out your sequin patches.
4. Place the patch on the sweater where desired. I recommend trying it on after pinning to make sure you like it.
5. Hand sew the edges of the patch to the sleeve. I found it was easiest to weave the needle a few stitches, and then pulling it through.
Best of luck,
