Elbow Patches

This is one of my favorite sweaters. It started out rather like a granny sweater but it has been improved with a new set of mismatched buttons and upon the elbows...dala horses. Cut out of dressmaker's felt and embroidered to mimic the typical mane, saddle, and bridle decoration, they are were then stitched on (checking with the sweater on to make sure they're in the correct place). They have survived for two years and several washes so I can attest that it's a pretty durable but quirky change.
