I was browsing Pinterest when I saw this brilliant DIY by Honestly WTF. I LOVE their DIYs especially because they are always easy. I had this striped shirt that needed an update so I thought putting heart shaped elbow patches on them would spruce them up! I loved the needle felting technique. Stabbing a needle up and down was an incredible stress relief. Thanks Mary for the extra wool!
- a cotton shirt or wool sweater
- a 36 gauge felting needle
- a piece of styrofoam
- wool roving
- a 3″ inch heart cookie cutter
- an iron
Continue to stab until all the wool is flat and even. Take the cookie cutter off and fix the edges of the heart. Carefully remove the styrofoam. To set the patch, iron on the wool setting. Repeat with the other elbow.
