Patched Up

I love this cardi, its cashmere and also had holes in the elbows. So a quick DIY patch job was needed.

I found a cup which I drew round and then moved to create a longer oval shape. This was my template.

I used my chopped up jeans (cut up to make my super useful bag!) as the fabric. They will be strong, a good colour to complement the oatmeal of the wool.

I positioned the patches over the holes, pinned and used perle cotton thread to sew the patches in place.
