Sat on a bench. Read a book. Leaned over my shoulder and saw this. Neat, heh?!

Sequins sweater elbow patches.

1,2,3 How-to

1. Cut out a round-cornered rectangle that is about the size of your hands (well, if you have long fingers…).

Seam allowance = 0

2. Put your sweater on and put a pin exactly where your elbow is.  Do this on both elbows.

3. Take your sweater back off and hand-sew on the elbow patches. The pins are to be the center of where your patches should be located.

So easy.   Hardest part is: finding the sequins fabric.
