Elbow Patches and Mr. Sartorialist

Monday, January 10, 2011

Do you remember having elbow or knee patches as a child on your sweaters and pants? Guess what, they are back and I'm loving them. How about you? Would you wear this look? xoxo

Ps: Speaking of amazing. Have you seen this inspirational short documentary about Mr. Sartorialist? He is fantastic!!!

I almost jumped out of my chair yelling "me me! I do I do!" The next craft on my to-do list has been placing elbow patches on old sweaters or cardigans. I can't wait! I'm obsessed.

I love elbow patches -- they are so collegiate!
And yes, I did see that short documentary on him! Such fun! It was wonderful to see how he loves what he's doing, wasn't it?

Big elbow patch fan. Just tried to get my husband to buy a shirt with them but he's not on board with me (yet!).
Really liked the video. Living an artful life is resonating with me now, will be thinking about that all day, thanks for sharing it.

I love elbow patches and sweaters with them. There was a DIY tutorial on Martha Stewart.com on how to do it yourself and it seems very easy.

And yes, I did see the Sartorialist video and it was very interesting to see what's going on in the mind of Scott and how he works and thinks ...

Happy Monday!

Elbow patches have never been "out" for me. I frequently add them to sweaters with worn elbows. Yes, loved the video - turned out to be a very good piece for Intel to sponsor.

I love patches. I am using them now for some of my designs on the boys sweaters for fw2011/12. Mine are made with the same material as the sweater, alpaca.

I love the Sartorialist, too! And elbow patches, but I love Scott the most ;) I posted on the video, too- it is really cool to see how he works.
