DIY Glitter Elbow Patches

{Add iron-on vinyl to your sleeves for a fun update}

Glitter vinyl.
Sign me up.

You know all those super cute shirts and cardigans with the elbow patches on them?  They can be yours!  This is a thrifted shirt that I knew would look awesome with some gold glitter on it.  (I bought this heat-transfer vinyl from Expressions Vinyl)

To find the right placement, wear the shirt and carfully mark where your elbow hits with a safety pin.  

Make a pattern by drawing an oval onto a piece of paper and checking on your shirt for size.  Cut two from the glitter vinyl.  

Follow vinyl instructions for applying to your shirt.  Peel off the transfer material when it's cool and you're done!

Have you used heat-transfer vinyl before?  What's your favorite thing to do with it?

  1. What a cute idea! I bought my first elbow-patch sweater and I love the idea of DIY-ing it (especially with GLITTER of course!) Hugs!
