The cardigan I wore last weekend is my very favorite cardigan. I bought it on a trip to the US when I was 21 and it has been going strong for 4 years! I wear it ALL the time. The elbows have been getting thinner and thinner, so I decided to do some patch-up work and keep my favorite cardi!
I used Casey's 'secret to perfect patch pockets' - ironing my suede patches over a cardboard cut-out to get the right shape before attaching them.
Then I just sewed them onto the thinning elbows!
