Heart Elbow Patches

I have this little jumper that i love (it actually used to be my sisters!) but the elbows are wearing through so i decided to make some elbow patches for it! When i went to London the other week i went to a leather wholesaler and bought some scraps (think im going to make some little coin purses with it) and this light tan colour was perfect for the patches. I was inspired by these needle felted patches at Honestly WTF. I just cut out the hearts with a rotary cutter, stuck them in place with double sided tape (never uses pins on leather) and then hand sewed them into place with some cream wool. Can wait to wear it!
