DIY KITTY ELBOW PATCHES




I wanted to jazz up a plain army jacket I found at H&M and what better way than kitties? I cut the shaped pieces of corduroy from an old overnight bag I sewed years ago and went to town on this rainy Seattle evening.
Proper placement can be tricky. Pins are your best friends, pop a few and take a gander in the mirror before striking a needle.

My muse.

It takes some fancy finger work to sew on the inside of long sleeves but get in a rhythm and you're home free. Finish off the knot on the inside by turning the sleeve inside out.

Voila! Meowwww
