Level Of Effort: Medium
What You Need: A long-sleeve sweater with little to no texture (too much can be tough with work with), contrasting fabric for the patches, straight pins, iron-on fabric tape, oval/heart/square pattern (either search for one online or make your own), a pen, scissors, a damp cotton cloth.
How It's Done: Determine the exact elbow bend of your sweater, and mark each spot with a pin. Taking care the two places line up, go ahead and make a square of fuse tape around each one before removing the pins. Now trace and cut out the patches from your contrasting fabric, lay them over the fuse tape, and press the iron down on each side, using the damp cloth as a barrier. (Of course, if you feel comfortable with sewing instead, that's always an option as well—this look is especially cute when you use contrasting thread!)
