I’ve been known to wear a “holiday” shirt, but it normally isn’t my thing. This year, however I decided to make one. One that was cute, and still stylish…to me at least. (Remember that’s one of my style rules, wear what you like and what you feel good in, who cares who looks you up and down…)
Anyway, I started with my materials. (No pic here, it messed up somehow) A gray shirt, green felt, painters tape, Liquid Stitch, needle and thread.
Kinda giving away the end result, but I am making elbow patches for my shirt….
First I put the shirt on and used the tape to mark where my elbows were.
Next I sat in front of the TV and hand stitched around the patch. I actually liked the handmade look it gave it. (Cause my hand stitching isn’t perfection let me tell you.)
And there you go!
