I must admit I am a blazer lover. For some reason I think they go with everything I wear. I'm not totally sure that's true. I have been rocking the same blazers for a year or two now and I have been thinking they need a little pizzaz. I started seeing really cute jackets with elbow patches and it hit me how simple it would be to make that adjustment. It was as easy as I thought and turned out adorable! Here is how you can too...
fabric (I used suede and corduroy)
needle and thread
elbow patch pattern (you can try this one but I thought it was a little big so I made my own)
1. Cut two patches from your fabric using your pattern.
2. Try on your jacket to figure out the appropriate placement of your patch and pin it there.
3. Pick your thread and stitch around your patch (I chose to hand stitch mine).
4. Try it on and see how good you look!
And to add a little funk...
